Cauliflower Rice Salad
- 1 head of cauliflower (medium)
- 1/2 white onion
- 6 chestnut mushrooms
- 1 cloves garlic
- 5g fresh parsley
- Juice 1/2 lemon
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 handfuls fresh watercress
- Salt & pepper
Cut the cauliflower into florets and wash well.
Dry the cauliflower then place in the food processor. Pulse to break down the cauliflower into a rice like consistency, don’t over blend and puree it!
Add the olive oil to a frying pan over a medium heat.
While the oil is heating, chop the onion finely then add to the frying pan. Sauté for a few minutes to brown then add the crushed garlic cloves.
Chop the mushroom then add to the frying pan and cook for 5-6 minutes to soften.
Add the cauliflower rice the frying pan along with the juice of 1/2 lemon, chopped fresh parsley and plenty of salt and pepper. Cook over a medium heat for 10-12 minutes, or until the cauliflower rice has cooked through and has started to turn a golden brown colour.
Remove from the heat and stir in the fresh watercress before serving!
