One of my favorite ways to prepare cauliflower is to rice it so it looks like couscous. It is a healthy and nutritious, and not to mention gluten-free.

You’ll first want to start by cooking the onions until they are fragrant and translucent. Then, you will want to add in the bell pepper, asparagus, garlic and cilantro and cook until the asparagus are slightly tender. Add cumin, salt and pepper.

It’s amazing how the texture and the look of the cauliflower looks like real couscous when it’s “riced.” But, you’ll want to be careful not to over mix; you don’t want to puree the cauliflower at all. Once you have the “couscous” ready, toss the mix with the rest of the ingredients, but not too much so it stays fluffy.
