Cauliflower Rice with Fresh Peas and Cumin

Rawmazing Cauliflower and Peas

Cauliflower. It isn’t a word that makes your heart skip a beat, or makes you start to salivate. But it is a work horse that can don many coats. I have used it as a pizza crust, a base for “stir-fry”, roasted it, made cauliflower steaks in the dehydrator and even made raw mashed “potatoes” with it.  I love cauliflower for it’s diversity. You will love it with peas and cumin in this easy, raw recipe that will remind you that spring is right around the corner.

Did you know that cauliflower has wonderful health benefits? It is a cruciferous vegetable, a member of the powerhouse team. It is considered to be a cancer preventer, and Cauliflower also has phytonutrients that can help activate detoxification enzymes and regulate their activity. Can’t beat that! Cauliflower is a good source of Vitamin C and Manganese, and it’s levels of vitamin K make it an inflammatory fighter, too.

With many parts of the country still being savaged by winter, I wanted to bring you a recipe that will remind you that spring isn’t too far away. Cauliflower and fresh peas go beautifully together. When you top everything off with a lemon and cumin dressing, it all comes alive! Give this one a whirl. I know you won’t be disappointed.

    I’m eating this right now. I didn’t have pinenuts so I substituted hummus on top. Yum. Yum.

    “I am really confused when fresh peas end up in raw food recipes. Trader Joe’s sells fresh shelled peas and they are hard as a rock. How then do you eat them? Are there different kinds of peas? And do you use them in this recipe? Confused…”

    Buy the sugar snap peas and shell your own, or simply chop on the diagonal if your lazy like me. Peas should be sweet, light and crisp, not like little pellets! Those must be for cooking.

    Can’t wait to try this! Great job!
