Low Carb Cauliflower Cous Cous. Who needs Cous Cous when you can eat Caulicous? My favorite master of disguise vegetable, the humble cauliflower, stars again in this simple and easy to make dish. Use it as a side dish, a vegetable or a salad to go with meat, chicken fish or Middle Eastern food. I love that this dish is also low in carbs and gluten free……tick.

This really simple dish is quick to prepare with a few ingredients. Make sure you have some Moroccan Spice at hand and either rice some cauliflower or buy some already riced from the supermarket. I like to only just cook the cauliflower as I like my cous cous to have a bit of texture, just like the original dish. 2 minutes of cooking is more than enough time for my tastes, but if you want it cooked a bit more, feel free to.

How To Serve Low Carb Cauliflower Cous Cous

Make sure you season this dish really well with salt and pepper and parsley, and add a liberal amount of EVOO- extra virgin olive oil. I love eating this Low Carb Cauliflower Cous Cous with many of the Moroccan Style recipes that feature on this blog. As you can see, I really do love my Moroccan food and many recipes have already been shared on this website. Serve this Low Carb Cauliflower Cous Cous with the wonderfully aromatic Low Carb Syrian Chicken, along with some of the side dishes such as Oven Roasted Moroccan Pumpkin and the delicious Oven Roasted Green Beans with Harissa.

Make sure you follow this really simple recipe to make your own Moroccan Spice Mix so you won’t ever run out again. You are never going to buy it again once you’ve made it. It’s such lovely aromatic spice mix, I am certain you will love it.
