> 1 head Nature's Promise ® Organic Cauliflower
> 1/2 cup golden raisins
> 1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
> 3 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
> 1 lb raw peeled, deveined shrimp
> 1 tbsp ras el hanout
> 1 tsp ground cumin
> 1 tsp sugar
> 2 tbsp canola oil


Roughly chop the cauliflower florets. In batches, add to a food processor and pulse until cauliflower resembles couscous.
Add cauliflower to a large microwave-safe bowl with the raisins and ½ cup water. Cover with vented plastic and microwave 2–3 min., until fully cooked. Drain, if needed, and return to bowl. Season with salt to taste. Fold in the almonds and cilantro.
Meanwhile, pat the shrimp dry. Toss shrimp with the ras el hanout, cumin, and sugar. Season with salt and pepper.
In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat the oil on medium-high. Add shrimp to skillet in single layer and cook 4 min., until browned on both sides, turning over once halfway through. Serve shrimp over cauliflower couscous.


If pressed for time, substitute 1 (16 oz) pkg riced cauliflower.
