Filling and nutrient dense raw cauliflower salad

The key to really increasing your greens – I mean eating loads and loads of them in one go, not just drinking them in juices or smoothies (which is not bad either) – is to very finely chop them. Even better is often to briefly run them in a food processor, or use a hand shredder. This salad is a great example of that – so much vegetables in one serving, meaning so much nutrients and fiber in one go. This salad is super filling, super healthy and so delicious. It’s my January go-to-lunch.

Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 1 small head of cauliflower
  • A few handfuls of your favourite greens (I've used spinach and kale)
  • A generous bunch of fresh coriander
  • DRESSING
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tbsp tamari (or other glutenfree-free soy sauce)
  • Juice from ⅓ lime
  • TO SERVE
  • Top off with a few spoons of this salad topping
Instructions
  1. First of all prepare the salad topping.
  2. Run the cauliflower in a food processor for a few seconds until it becomes grainy, looking a little like cous-cous. If you don't have a food processor, shred by hand. Place the cauliflower crumbles in a bowl while running the spinach and coriander together in the food processor for a few seconds. Add to this mix to the cauliflower bowl and combine the two.
  3. Make the dressing. Mash the avocado using a fork together with the tamari (or other soy sauce) and the lime juice until you have a creamy consistency. 'Massage' it into to the greens - make sure it's all well combined. Place in a serving bowl, and top off with a few spoons of the salad topping.
