Usually, cous cous is made of seminola. And usually you don’t find it rolled up in cucumber. That makes this dish somewhat unusual, and that’s partly what makes it so great. Sometimes you come across ideas you can’t believe you hadn’t thought of. For ideas like these cauliflower cous cous cucumber rolls, we can all just be glad that someone came up with it.

In this case, the cous cous is made not from wheat but from cauliflower. The little cauliflower crumbles actually do a pretty good job of imitating traditional cous cous, but with the added benefits of keeping these cucumber rolls raw and gluten-free!

These refreshing morsels make a great appetizer or snack if you’re entertaining. Easy to make, easy to enjoy, and light on the stomach. Shared between just a couple people, they also make for an awesome light lunch.

The combination of raisins, tahini, and chili makes for a really neat texture and flavoring. Mildly sweet, a little spicy, and a little creamy, these cucumber rolls manage to pack a lot of flavor while keeping it mild. Tahini really has a unique capacity for tying things together, and is great generally if you need to avoid using peanut butter.

  1. Add everything to a food processor and blitz away until you get a cous cous consistency.
  2. Cut the cucumbers in thin slices and pat them dry with paper towels to absorb the extra moisture.
  3. Add about 1 full tablespoon of ‘cous cous’ to a slice of cucumber, spreading it throughout and roll. Poke it with a toothpick to hold it in place.
  4. Continue with the rest of the rolls and serve fresh.
