Autumn Blooms and Moody Skies, Inspiration from Musetouch and Cauliflower Tabbouleh

Why hello there. I hope you had the most wonderful weekend. Today I share with you all "Autumn Blooms and Moody Skies, Inspiration from Musetouch and Cauliflower Tabbouleh". Happy Reading xo♥
Autumn Blooms and Moody Skies 
Autumn is one of my favourite times of year. We have lots of native plants in flower in our garden at the moment, they are really gorgeous.
Cool crisp mornings, mostly sunny days and fabulous cloud formations in the skies close to sunset. Do you have a favourite season?
Inspiration from Musetouch
By chance, I stumbled across some truly wonderful pins on Pinterest by Maia Sylba of Musetouch Visual Arts Magazine.

created by Maia Sylba out of love and passion for art with

Cauliflower Tabbouleh 
While relaxing at the hairdressers, flicking through glossy trashy magazines, I spied this recipe for Cauliflower Tabbouleh. Instead of using Burghul, you use Cauliflower finely chopped in a food processor. This is really yummy, you simply must try it for yourself. 
Cauliflower Tabbouleh
serves 6-8
250g Cauliflower
3 Tomatoes, peeled and seeded
2 Lebanese Cucumbers, seeded and finely diced
1 Red Onion finely chopped
2 Cups Flat Leaf Parsley, roughly chopped
1 Cup Mint, roughly chopped
1/3 lemon juice
100ml of Olive Oil
Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper to season

1. Process cauliflower in food processor until finely chopped ( it should have the texture of Burghul).
2. Mix the cauliflower, tomato, cucumber, onion, parsley, mint, lemon juice and olive oil in a large bowl, season with salt and pepper. 
3. Serve immediately - enjoy! 

Dear readers, I hope you have enjoyed "Autumn Blooms and Moody Skies, Inspiration from Musetouch and Cauliflower Tabbouleh". See you all on Wednesday for a new Wednesday Wishes blog post xo♥
