Helloooo your new favourite summer dish! I mean, just look at it! It screams health and those gorgeous grill marks on the vegetables – you know it’s going to be flavourful!
I can just imagine myself sitting outside having an alfresco meal with lots of salads like this and ripe tomatoes and basil because if that’s not the epitome of summer I don’t even know what is!
Cauliflower Rice & Grilled Vegetable Salad vegan, gluten free, dairy free
This is the perfect summer meal as it’s so light and easy to make yet so full of flavour and works with any vegetable to your taste, I also love adding grilled aubergine to this! It’s also even more delicious if you add dried fruit like raisins or apricots to add texture and sweetness!
1 zucchini, sliced lengthways
10 spears of asparagus, sliced in half
Handful of steamed green beans or peas
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Handful of raisins
Coriander, to garnish (parsley would also work)
1/2 lemon, zest and juice
Apple cider vinegar
Cauliflower rice, to serve (I keep it raw but you can sauté it)
Make your cauliflower rice and set aside.
Heat a grill pan or you can use a George Foreman grill.
Add oil to the grill and add the zucchini and season with salt and pepper.
Let it cook untouched for about a minute and when the grill marks show, flip it over.
Do the same for al the zucchini and the asaragus and once cooked, set aside.
Plate your bed of cauliflower rice and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar and salt.
Top with grilled vegetables, sprinkle of beans or peas, lots of coriander and raisins.
Serve with lemon wedges on the side.
