Cauliflower `Cous Cous` with Kale Chips

3 years ago

Hi Luuuxers!
I`ve been wanting to eat healthier, and incorporate Kale into my diet. This has been pretty hard seeing as Kale is not that tasty, and I really didn`t know what to do with it. Recently I tried this recipe (from a blog I read - link in the source) and it was delicious.
Cauliflower `Cous Cous`
1 large head of cauliflower
1 large onion, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
½ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup pine nuts, toasted
2 tsp ground cumin
1½ tsp paprika
Optional: ¼-½ tsp red chili flakes
¼ bunch cilantro or parsley, roughly chopped
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
For the Kale Chips:
1 bunch kale
1 tsp garlic, minced
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
Break the florets from the cauliflower and chop into smaller pieces. Transfer to a food processor and pulse several times until they are finely chopped and resemble cous cous. It may be easier to do so in two batches to ensure the florets can be evenly chopped.
Place the dried cranberries in a small bowl and cover with warm water to plump them up. Set aside for 10 minutes.
In a large pan heat the olive oil over medium heat and add the onions. Saute for 3-5 minutes, until translucent, then add the chopped garlic. Cook for another minute or until the garlic becomes fragrant.
Add the chopped cauliflower, cumin, paprika, and red chili flakes (if using) and mix well to incorporate. Season with salt and pepper and cook for another five minutes until the cauliflower softens.
Drain the cranberries and add to the pan along with the pine nuts. Gently mix in the cilantro or parsley and adjust with salt and pepper.
To make the kale chips: trim the ends off the kale and toss with the olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Lay the kale in an even layer on a large baking tray and roast at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-20 minutes, depending on how crispy you want it. Halfway through flip the kale pieces over so that both sides crisp evenly.
