Cauliflower Couscous

Time is precious for all of us, especially if you want to cook something easy and healthy at the same time. But the options start to become quite challenging if you have a special condition such as diabetes.

I used to cook Mediterranean couscous, which is a nice and simple salad. But then I developed this recipe making a twist with healthy ingredients that can help you to reduce the intake of carbohydrates such as couscous or quinoa. So let me share this option with you.

CAULIFLOWER COUSCOUS – Special for People with Diabetes. 

You will need 1 fresh cauliflower, 2 peppers diced, 3 springs of coriander finely chopped, 1 zucchini diced, 3 tablespoons of lime juice, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 red onion finely chopped,  1 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, 3 springs of mint finely chopped, 2 tomatoes diced, 1 medium-size piece of ginger diced and a pinch of freshly ground black pepper.


Start by chopping the cauliflower into small pieces, or you can use the food processor. Then boil the mix for about 7 minutes. Remove all the water and put the cauliflower in a large bowl and let it cool down.

Meanwhile, mix all the vegetables and put them in another bowl, add the olive oil, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and the freshly ground black pepper and mix together. Place all the ingredients with the cauliflower and use a fork to fluff up the mix and leave all the flavors to merge for 15 minutes.


Transfer the cauliflower couscous onto serving plates, You can enjoy this recipe with avocado and sweet potatoes. This is a healthy option for those who have a special condition such as diabetes and want to maintain a normal blood sugar level. Please share your comments and follow me on
