We have arrived in Italy! It’s amazing to be here again, it really feels like coming home! If it weren’t for the bad economy and the corrupt system we’d love to move back here.
The landscape is so beautiful and we’re so excited to see autumn colors in nature again. In Ibiza it remains green all year round, which is quite incredible, but it’s still nice to experience the variation of the seasons.
Best of all is the food of course. The ingredients are amazing! And the hospitality that you find here is difficult to find somewhere else. You feel so welcomed everywhere you go.
Today we’re sharing this amazing recipe for a raw couscous with Mediterranean flavors. It’s easy to make and it’s made with ingredients that is easily found in any supermarket. Try it out and let us know what you think!
Mediterranean Couscous in Red Pepper Sauce
1 medium cauliflower, cut into florets
1 pinch of turmeric
1/2 celery stalk chopped fine
6 cherry tomatoes, cut brunoise
2 tablespoons capers
10 sundried tomatoes, soaked for 2 hours, rinsed and chopped fine
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/3 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon of sweet onion cut brunoise
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
Salt and black pepper, to taste
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 cup / 70 g cashew, soaked for 2 hours and rinsed
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 carrot, peeled
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
1 tablespoon olive oil

In a food processor, blend the cauliflowers floret to reach couscous consistency. Transfer to a bowl and mix with remaining ingredients.
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients. Add to the couscous and mix well.
Blend all the ingredients until smooth and creamy in a high-speed blender.
Make spaghettini with the carrot using a spiralizer. Mix with lime juice, salt and chopped coriander. (In case you don’t have a spiralizer, you can make fettuccine using a peeler.)
Use a mould to give the couscous a circular shape and top with spaghettini. Splash the plate with some sauce to have a very colorful effect.
