Perfect for anyone who is gluten-free this recipe is full of fresh herbs and the inclusion of oranges adds a lovely sweetness.This dish would be perfect alongside a glazed roast lamb.

Method

For the cauliflower tabbouleh

1

Chop the cauliflower stalks, leaves and florets into chunks. Add them to a food processor and blitz them until they resemble coarse bread crumbs. You may need to do this in batches. Alternatively, use a grater.

2

Microwave for 4-5 minutes to steam or alternatively bring a large pot of water to boil. Once boiling, add the cauliflower crumbs and simmer for 4-5 minutes until al dente (firm to the bite). Drain the cauliflower.
