Raw Vegan Cauliflower & Walnut Rice

Raw Vegan Cauliflower & Walnut Rice that can be served any time of the year, it’s refreshing and super quick to make!
Coarsely grated raw cauliflower has a pleasantly uneven texture and a lovely ability to absorb flavors. The salty little capers add piquancy to the dish and walnuts give color, body, and crunch.

I have been trying to eat more raw food, and get back on track to healthy eating. I have been pretty bad this year I must say, this whole pandemic got me eating loads of comfort foods. And we all know that the majority of comfort foods are – unhealthy.

Anyway, there are ways to enjoy raw eating, and this recipe is a perfect example.
The humble cauliflower absorbs flavors like a sponge, so you gotta give it some exquisite flavors!

When I create recipes, I follow these 3 rules:
You need flavor, texture, and body. The moment you get the first mouthful – you should immediately be stricken with a flavor! Like a punch – in your mouth!
