Print Recipe


  • ½ head cauliflower
  • 4 spring onions finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Flat leaf parsley finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Fresh mint finely chopped
  • 4 oz Feta cheese
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  • 1 Lemon Zest & Juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon Sumac optional garnish

Zucchini Topping

  • 1 medium zucchini


  • Cut the cauliflower into florets and place in a food processor. Blitz until it looks like rice. Alternatively you can grate the cauliflower florets.
  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan on a medium heat and cook the cauliflower rice for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally so not to brown it.
  • Remove from the heat and put aside.
  • Preheat the grill to high. In a large bowl, whisk the olive oil, lemon juice and zest.
  • Cut the zucchini into ribbons using a vegetable peeler or a sharp knife.  
  • Place the zucchini ribbons into the bowl with the dressing to coat them.
  • Arrange the zucchini ribbons on a baking tray (line with parchment paper) and place under the hot grill for about 2 minutes each side until golden.
  • Add the spring onions, parsley and mint to the cauliflower rice and gently stir.
  • Crumble the Feta cheese into the cauliflower mixture and mix. Season with the black pepper.
  • Spoon the cauliflower rice into a bowl and top with the grilled zucchini slices. Drizzle with the remaining dressing and sprinkle with sumac.
