  • 7 cups riced cauliflower*
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cups packed parsley leaves with tender stems finely chop after measuring
  • 1/4 cup packed mint leaves finely chop after measuring
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 English cucumber (seedless) diced into 1/4" pieces
  • 1 cup Compari tomatoes diced*
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • 2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  2. In a large bowl, mix cauliflower "rice" with the 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil until evenly coated.
  3. Spread the cauliflower evenly on a rimmed baking sheet, lined with parchment paper, and roast in the oven for 45 min. to an hour. Using a fork, fluff and move around the cauliflower every 20 min to help it brown and dry out evenly. Remove the cauliflower from the oven and let it cool.

  4. While the cauliflower is roasting; add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix well.
  5. Gather the parchment paper together from the corners and use it to transfer the cauliflower back into the bowl with the other ingredients. Mix well.
Recipe Notes

*To make riced cauliflower; use 1 large head of cauliflower, coarsely chopped. Pulse cauliflower with in a food processor or grate on the largest holes on a box grater until rice-like in texture. You can also buy riced cauliflower in most supermarkets now in either the fresh prepped vegetable section of the frozen vegetable section.

* Roasted Cauliflower "rice" can be made 3 days ahead. Chill in a resealable container. 

*In Massachusetts we are able to get delicious fresh compari (small on the vine) tomatoes from Backyard Farms in Maine year round, if you live in other parts of the country you should be able to find fresh Compari tomatoes in your produce section but if not, use grape or cherry tomatoes. They will have the sweetest, freshest flavor.
