“This is one of my favorite dishes,” Karen says. “I loved it when I ate it partially cooked before I went raw in 1994, and I still love it now in 2013, but I enjoy it with ground cauliflower or sprouted quinoa instead of the old version, made with bulghur wheat.”
- Process the cauliflower in a food processor with the “S” blade until well-ground.
- Remove the cauliflower from the food processor and place in a large bowl.
- Process the parsley, tomato, scallions, lemon juice and mint (diced cucumber could also be added afterward for variation.) Pulse several times until well-mixed.
- Add optional diced avocado last and mix thoroughly.
- Double the ingredients for more people.
