Cauliflower "Couscous"

Directions

  1. Place the cranberries and apricots in a small bowl. Cover with boiling water and let stand for 10 minutes or until plump; drain well. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, place the cauliflower in batches in a food processor. Cover and pulse each batch until crumbly and mixture resembles the texture of couscous.
  3. In a very large skillet heat 1 tablespoon of the butter and the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion; cook and stir about 3 minutes or until tender and just starting to brown. Add garlic; cook and stir for 30 seconds more. Add the cauliflower, spreading in an even layer. Cook about 8 minutes or until cauliflower is golden, stirring occasionally. Spread in an even layer.
  4. Stir in the drained cranberries and apricots, the spinach, pistachios, and salt. Cook and stir until combined. Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and the green onions. Toss until butter melts. Transfer to a serving bowl.

I made it and served it for lunch. The whole family loved it. The version I did used 1/2 cup apricots and no cranberries, but otherwise identical.
