Caramelized Cauliflower & Herbed Sorghum Salad


Welcome back to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl and Jess from Hello to Fit.  Also, make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well! 

HOORAY! It’s Friday, finally and almost HALLOWEEN! While I don’t have any new spooky snacks or recipes to share for today (you can check out my Eye Popping Avocado Deviled Eggs from last year here), I DO have something scary delicious that I whipped up and it’s the perfect warm salad for those chilly fall and winter days. 

Since our theme is cauliflower today, I chose to do something a little different than say the typical “steak” or vegan buffalo bites.  Not that there is anything wrong with those- they are both delicious but I was feeling fancy and such so a Caramelized Cauliflower & Herbed Sorghum Salad it is! 

Caramelized Cauliflower and Herbed Sorghum Salad Recipe {Gluten Free, Vegan, Winter Salad, Fall Salad, Vegetarian}

 

 

Other than the sorghum, which takes a little while to cook and can be done ahead of time, this schmancy salad can be whipped up rather quickly.  Between the cauliflower florets and chewy sorghum, it makes a fantastic and hearty lunch and even a great side dish for small dinner parties.

    Haha I just grabbed it while I was at the grocery store and figured it would be a good alternative to quinoa or rice!

I love how much parsley is in this dish -reminds me a bit of a tabbouleh (which is my favorite!!). I'm all about the cauliflower rice, I wonder if I could combine the sorghum and cauliflower rice I keep on hand.. sounds pretty fantastic!

You are so creative! I would have never thought about adding cooked cauliflower to a salad!
It looks great! Will have to try it (but without the onion) soon :)
