Caulisan Quinoa

Blog 031

It is Thursday! Yes!!!  This means tomorrow is Friday and I am going to the pictures (hopefully to see Channing Tatum save the world, or at least take his shirt off once or twice) and then I am going to sleep and sleep and sleep! Oh, How excited I am about sleeping for ages! But then you know what will happen…I’ll get excited because I don’t have to get up early for work on Saturday so I will stay up late and then wake up early anyway.  First World Problems.

Anyway… promised yesterday here is the recipe for my random concoction, which was delicious.  I am calling it Caulisan Quinoa. (it will all become clear)



A whole head of cauliflower

A red onion

2 courgettes

5 cloves of garlic

Olive oil

½ a cup of parmesan cheese (grated)

½ a cup of quinoa (I prefer the red one because it tastes nuttier)

Black pepper

Rock salt



Rinse the quinoa and then put it in a pot to simmer for about 20 minutes or until ready.  You’ll need roughly twice as much water as quinoa.

Wash and pat dry the cauliflower, chop it into florets and then put in the food processor so it comes out looking like rice.

Put it in a microwave friendly dish and microwave for 7 minutes.

In the meantime chop up the garlic, onion and courgette, add a little olive oil to a non stick pan and when it is hot enough sauté it all together.

Drain the quinoa and add it to the veggies, along with the cauliflower, some rock salt and (lots of) black pepper.

Mix it all together, add the cheese, mix it some more et viola!

Blog 032Congratulations you just made Caulisan Quinoa.

High five to you!
