    About this recipe: Cauliflower masquerades as couscous in this paleo salad recipe with red pepper, olives, lemon and parsley. If you don't have a food processor, you can use a grater to prepare the cauliflower.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 head cauliflower, cut into large chunks
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 red pepper, finely chopped
    • 2 shallots, chopped
    • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 180ml chicken stock
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

    1. Process cauliflower in batches by pulsing in a food processor until it has the consistency of cooked couscous.
    2. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Cook red pepper in hot oil until hot, about 2 minutes; add shallots and garlic and cook until soft, about 2 minutes. Stir cauliflower with the vegetables in the pan; cook and stir until the cauliflower is hot, 3 to 5 minutes.
    3. Pour chicken stock over the cauliflower mixture; season with salt and thyme. Simmer the mixture until the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Stir lemon zest and lemon juice into the mixture; continue cooking for about 2 more minutes.
    4. Remove pan from heat; add olives and parsley. Toss to mix before serving.
