Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place the apricots in a small bowl. Cover with boiling water and let stand 10 minutes or until plump; drain well.

  • Meanwhile, place the cauliflower in batches in a food processor. Cover and pulse each batch until crumbly and pieces resemble the texture of couscous.

  • In an extra-large skillet heat 1 Tbsp. of the butter and 1 Tbsp. of 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 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 after stirring.

  • Stir in the drained apricots, the spinach, chickpeas, pistachios, and salt. Cook and stir until combined. Stir in the remaining 1 Tbsp. butter and the green onions. Toss until butter melts. Transfer to a serving bowl. Drizzle with remaining 1 Tbsp. olive oil.
