What Happens When You Combine Cauliflower and Tabouli?
Cau-bouli! We know, we know, you want more cauliflower. Now that you’ve been inspired by our cauliflower recipe roundup and made some delicious cauliflower quiches + butternut mash, you just can’t get enough. Thankfully, it’s cauliflower week and we’re gonna keep it coming! This time, we’re putting a raw spin on cauliflower and making a delicious vegetable salad that doesn’t involve any cooking. Inspired by Lebanese tabouli, we removed the bulgur and replaced it with cauliflower!
– 1 head of cauliflower
– 2 bunches of parsley, stems removed
– 1 bunch mint, stems removed
– 1 tomato
– 2 scallions
– 1/4 cup olive oil
– 1/8 cup lemon juice
– tools: food processor
First, we’re going to chop it all up!
Begin by rinsing your cauliflower and scallions. Break apart the cauliflower into large florets so your food processor doesn’t die when trying to dice the cauliflower ;). Then, chop the scallions into large pieces. Add it all into the food processor and pulse until it looks like grains of rice. Add in lemon juice and set in a large mixing bowl.
Then, we’re going to do the same with the parsley and mint. Throw all the de-stemmed parsley and mint into the food processor and pulse until it’s finely shredded. Put in the bowl with the cauliflower.
Chop the tomatoes into large chunks and then toss it into the bowl. Pour in olive oil, and mix it all up! Add salt and pepper to taste.
Prepare your endive boats by cutting off the stem and peeling off the outer leaves. Spoon a tablespoon of caubouli into each endive boat and you’re good to go!
You can also serve it up in a big bowl or platter surrounded by endive leaves for a healthier take on chips + dip. And for more yummy ways to use endives, check out last summer’s roundup of 3 ways to use the incredible edible endive.
It can be intimidating to step out on your own and build a business from the ground up. As part of our collaboration with Office Depot, we're talking with Selfmade alum and solopreneur Colette Lawrence, the faith-based motivator and relationship builder behind The M.E.E. Movement, about ways in which women in business can find success.
B + C: How did you know M.E.E. Movement was your business to start?
The M.E.E Movement represents motivation, empowerment, and encouragement for women. It is what represents me. I did not know at first that it was my business to start, but then the thought of monetizing what I loved came to me. It scared me, however. I registered the business in July 2020 and have been slowly building my wings since.
B + C: What's one strategy that's helped you start your business?
Thinking through and researching what the requirements are to start my business, and then asking questions of people who are in the business. Not all advice worked; however, it helped me to figure out what I needed to do and not to do.
B + C: Did you always know life coaching would be your entrepreneurial path?
(Smiles) No, I did not. I 'stumbled" on it. I knew that people were always coming to me for advice and I found that I loved having conversations with them, especially with women, young and old.
B + C: What was your most valuable takeaway from Selfmade?
My most valuable takeaway was the first day of training: Get out of your own way. There were a lot of great moments and important takeaways from every presenter. However, getting out of my own way, pushing past doubts, was for me my most valuable takeaway. Doing something that I had never done before took courage. If I do not focus on what is happening with me mentally then I cannot deliver to my clients successfully.
B + C: What's one piece of advice you would give to female entrepreneurs on the brink of starting?
Get out of your head. You have something to offer. You have what you need to succeed so go ahead and do it.
B + C: How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by listening to music and listening to motivational speakers, and sometimes someone will just reach out and talk about the impact that I made in their life. That adds the extra juice or sauce I need to pummel through the day.
B + C: What's your best organizational tip?
Keep a diary and journal. It's the best way for me to keep organized and it also provides a source motivation as I record not only my "losses" but my wins as well.
B + C: Who inspires you in the entrepreneurial space?
Shirley Toliver – She motivates and empowers and makes me always want to show up.
B + C: What has receiving the Office Depot scholarship to Selfmade done to help you start or grow your business?
The scholarship was a blessing in that all the areas that were covered offered valuable information that I needed, from social media to HR. As a new business owner, I needed to know this to increase my own personal awareness in what it takes to run a successful business. The candidness of the presenters made it easy to see myself in their shoes and helped me to realize that I can also get there.
