Cauliflower Tabouli

I always roast my cauliflower but never thought to chop it finely and make a beautiful salad with it.

Before you chop the cauliflower, rinse and dry it with a clean kitchen towel. You can slice the florets finely with a sharp knife or with a Japanese mandoline.

Don’t throw away the stalky part. You can chop it finely, then roast it as I mentioned above, or keep it whole, coat it with tahini butter and roast it in a 200°C or 400°F preheated oven.

  1. Trying this one for Shabbat dinner tonight! TJ sells it already cut, easy peasy looks deliciousy!

  2. This yummy salad was on our dinner table, delicious!! Next this week is the Bagles… Can’t find really good ones in LA (when I was in NY last month It hit on me that the bagels here are not the real deal!).

    • They are very easy to make. But FYI, there is a bagel shop on Larchmont street that pretty good bagels. It’s not Noah bagels, don’t remember the name but it’s by a bookstore (which we also love). My next post is My LA, you’ll like it.
