Turmeric Cauliflower ‘Cous Cous’

Turmeric Spiced Cauliflower ‘Cous Cous’

This simple Cauliflower Couscous recipe takes no time at all to make but the flavours are just amazing! I am a big fan of making healthier versions of meals I love, and this comforting ‘couscous’ is a great low carb alternative to rice or couscous, that still keeps you feeling satisfied for hours after. This nourishing meal is full of goodness that will make you glow inside and out!

Turmeric is a wonder food – it has so many health benefits so I love including it in my cooking whenever I can. As well as being an anti-inflammatory, turmeric is a strong antioxidant and supports blood sugar balance. Check out my Turmeric Spiced Granola, and my Golden Turmeric Smoothie recipes

I love to drizzle the bowl with tahini and sprinkle some extra pumpkin seeds on the top. It works great as a side dish or as a great addition to a tapas style meal! For non-vegetarians, I served this with chicken breasts as a main course. The favours of the spices, mixed with the sweet raisins reminds me of coronation chicken!
