Mediterranean Cauliflower-Couscous

I loved this new take on couscous. The spices themselves are so warming. It’s healthy comfort food at its best.

Serves 2. Preparation time: 20 min


  • 4 sprigs of cauliflower
  • 1/3 cup of quinoa
  • 2 tbsp amaranth
  • 1/4 of a red bell pepper, finely sliced lengthwise, cut into three sidewise and ideally let soaked in white wine vinegar for at least 20 min
  • 5 sprigs of mint, finely sliced
  • 1 tsp Tandoori Masala
  • 3 tbsp roasted hazelnuts, chopped
  • 2 tbsp figs, chopped into raisin-size pieces, or raisins
  • juice of 1 lime (or lemon)
  • 4 tbsp germinated wild rice (optional, you can also cook it)


Cook the quinoa and amaranth for 10 min and let rest for 5 min. Cut the cauliflower into small pieces and blend them until rice-like. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and serve.
