MEDITERRANEAN CAULIFLOWER RICE, WITH CHICKPEAS, GRILLED TOFU & AVOCADO



Ingredients

1 can of chickpeas or approx 200g of dried cooked chickpeas
1 block of tofu
1 avocado
Tamari/soy sauce
Smoked paprika 
turmeric

for the cauliflower rice
1 head of cauliflower 
2tbsp of tomato puree
2 Sundried tomatoes chopped
1 tbsp of olive oil
the juice of 1 lemon 
chopped olives 
1 clove of garlic 

season with
dried basil, oregano, parsley, paprika 
sea salt, black pepper

(makes approx 2 servings)


Recipe

Start by preparing your cauliflower rice, you can either do this the quick way by food processing your whole head of cauliflower so it looks like a small grain and kind of resembles rice.
Or you can do this the tedious way like i did by chopping it into very small pieces, i really need to invest in a food processor soon!
Then were going to stir fry the cauli rice, add all of the seasonings e.g. the tomato puree, olive oil, lemon etc.
and stir fry for approx 10 minutes until cooked.

To prepare your tofu, chop into squares, and either bake or pan fry, with some tamari/soy sauce, a sprinkle of turmeric, and smoked paprika, and a little olive oil. 

Cook your chickpeas if needed.
Now arrange all your ingredients into a bowl, and slice some avocado on top.

And voila you have a delicious meal!




Hope you liked these lil recipes and try them for yourself!
