Cauliflower Couscous Recipe

The more I reflect on recipes, the more realization that the ones that really give us an oomph, and are positive for our health, are often raw and cruciferous. It is not just for protection against cancer, that is the usual citation,..cancer is significant just by itself…but the protection is really against most metabolic syndrome illnesses, including Heart Attacks, Strokes, Diabetes, Dementia, Alzheimer’s, and the list rolls on. Ergo I present an amazing Cauliflower Couscous Recipe.

Plant based salads, incorporating particularly both cauliflower, and other cruciferous vegetables are fantastic. The magic is that it is a sulphorophane and is an isothiocyanate, in that it opens up pathways that fight for instance both prostrate and breast cancer. Interestingly there is an activator called myrosinase that operates well away from heat…so my recommendation is just gently use heat for cauliflower! But also, any cauliflower is better than none! One can always make up with broccoli sprout smoothies that is the best way to achieve about 60 grams a day…but this is a whole other story!

Cauliflower Couscous Recipe. The real essence of this recipe is the substitution of carbohydrates such as Couscous!!! Now couscous, which Perlmutter is substituting, is really pasta and carbohydrate. This was his objective as he is acutely aware of the negatives of carbs, particularly wheat. The actual couscous is made from semolina flower AND wheat, but can contain the husk which if using couscous provides just a slightly better combination. If using a double barreled combination, personally prefer quinoa…which, in my book, is infinitely preferable, as it is a grain like seed, and contains fiber and protein, with less carbohydrates! But I like Dr. Permutter’s recipe… but also, there no harm, sometimes combining with quinoa!
