Made from finely-grated cauliflower, it’s light and fluffy and still has a bit of heft to it. It is also low in calories and carbs, making it an ideal option for those watching their weight. Additionally, cauliflower is a good source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. This makes it a nutritious addition to any meal.

The couscous is elevated with the zesty flavors of the lemon that brighten up the dish. It also has sultanas to add a touch of sweetness. These cucumber rolls are crispy and refreshing, and the tahini adds a bit of creaminess, binding all ingredients together.

Healthy, flavorful, and easy to make, these rolls are sure to become a new favorite in your household and are a perfect way to get your veggies in!

Cauliflower Couscous Cucumber Rolls Recipe Ingredients

Ingredient Notes

  • Cauliflower: It is a cruciferous vegetable with a mild flavor and a firm, crunchy texture that is often used as a low-carb substitute for rice or pasta. Thanks to its neutral flavor, cauliflower is extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of sweet and savory dishes. When choosing a cauliflower, look for one that is heavy for its size and has crisp, white curds. Avoid any cauliflower with brown spots or blemishes, as this is an indication that the vegetable is past its prime.
  • Cucumber: I have used Lebanese cucumber, which has dark green skin, white flesh, and a crisp texture.
  • Sultanas: Sultanas are a type of raisin that is light in color and have a sweet, chewy texture. They are also a popular snack food, as they are healthy and satisfying.
  • Parsley: If you’re like most people, you probably think of parsley as nothing more than a garnish. But this common herb is packed with flavor and nutrients. Parsley has a slightly peppery taste that can add a nice kick to any dish.
  • Lemon Juice: It adds a lovely zesty flavor that brightens up the dish.
  • Tahini: It’s made from ground sesame seeds and has a nutty, slightly bitter flavor. Tahini is traditional in Middle Eastern cuisine and is often used as a base for dips and sauces. It’s also delicious when stirred into soup or spread on toast. In this recipe, it helps to bind all the ingredients together.
  • Chili: For a spicy kick, I have added a pinch of chili flakes.

Ingredient Substitutions

  • Cucumber: I have used Lebanese cucumber, but if you can’t find it, use large cucumbers that yield wide slices when cut.
  • Sultanas: They can be replaced with raisins or dried cranberries.
  • Parsley: It can be replaced with cilantro or celery leaves.
  • Lemon Juice: It can be substituted with lime juice.
  • Tahini: You can substitute tahini with peanut, cashew, or almond butter.

Do I need to peel the cucumbers before slicing them?

I like to keep the peel on since it adds a nice color and doesn’t affect the taste. But you can also peel them if you like.

What to do if the slices of cucumber are too thin and not sturdy enough?

Depending on how you cut the cucumber, you may have slices that are too thin. In that case, just double up the slices. Place two or three slices of cucumber on top of each other, spread the cauliflower couscous, and roll.

  • There are several ways to cut cucumbers into thin slices lengthwise. The easiest way is to use a vegetable peeler. Simply hold the cucumber in one hand and peel it downwards with the vegetable peeler. For a more even cut, you can use a mandoline. First, cut the ends off the cucumber. Then, place the cucumber on the mandoline and carefully slice it lengthwise.
  • Be sure to use the safety guard to protect your fingers when cutting the cucumbers! If you don’t have a mandoline, you can also use a sharp knife to carefully slice the cucumber lengthwise.
