Cauliflower “Couscous” Salad
Couscous! The food so good, they called it two times. Other than this isn’t couscous. It’s cauliflower in an amusing little camouflage. From very first looks this appears like a beautiful grain salad with some sliced herbs, a little seasonal fruit and a bright yellow curry dressing. However up close it’s an assortment of the teeniest cauliflower florets you might ever picture blended with all of those fantastic things. Cool, huh? I really like consuming cauliflower by doing this, it’s good and crisp and sort of techniques me into consuming more crucifers, the health all star of the veg world. Normally I roast it, however this meal is simply excessive enjoyable
September is constantly a patchwork of unquestionably summery days and cool, crisp fall sneak peeks around here. My schedule has actually been sort of wonky and irregular and we have actually been attempting to take in every last little bit of pleasurable outside time. All of it has actually been having some regrettable impacts on my food routines. Avoiding meals, munching on white bread occasionally, enjoying sweet things, more coffee than I can generally manage, red wine! and on and on. I’m not beating myself up for it at all. I have actually absolutely been enjoying it however! I seem like some predictability remains in order for my daily recently.
So! Returning down to it. I have actually properly ready myself in the food department. Great deals of veggies, huge bowls of grains, batches of soup and even larger assistings of this non-grain-but-sort-of-grain-like salad in the refrigerator. Oh, and some Udo’s oil, a fresh container of chocolate Vega and lots of organic tea. Seriously, it resembles an organic food shop in here!

Please inform me what garam masala is and where can I discover it in the supermarket?
It’s an Indian spice mix! You can purchase it in the spice aisle or in the spice area of some bulk grocery store. Or you can make your own too! This dish appears appealing: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/easy-garam-masala/detail.aspx
