Purple Cauliflower Tabbouleh

Purple Cauliflower Tabbouleh | Well and Full | #raw #vegan #recipe

Hello hello everyone! I’m super excited for today’s post because it’s part of a #VirtualEasterParty, hosted by Laura of A Sunshine Mission and Haley of Brewing Happiness. A bunch of us bloggers are sharing healthy recipes that are perfect for Easter, and this Purple Cauliflower Tabbouleh is my offering! It’s the perfect healthy side dish to have at your Easter table, and aesthetically appropriate with its vibrant purple color.

As a Catholic, Easter is the most important religious holiday of the year – it celebrates the miracle of Christ’s resurrection after He died for our sins. I personally think this is really cool and honestly a bit mindblowing. Whether or not you believe in the Bible, Jesus was an actual historical figure who was sentenced to death by the Roman prefect, Pontius Pilate. This is almost universally accepted by historians. And in the Catholic faith, we believe in the testimony of those who saw Christ, resurrected, after he had perished on the Cross. It honestly just blows my mind that someone would love all of humanity so completely that He would sacrifice his life, so that all of us could have eternal life in Heaven. Talk about unconditional love. And this is the true message of Easter – having this perfect love in Christ, and celebrating our gratitude for having the chance to be redeemed through Him.

The Christian message has gotten so skewed nowadays, especially in the political world. And I know it might be controversial to talk about this, but I really have been feeling a strong calling to defend the name of Christianity, especially Catholicism. No one is trying to say that all Catholics are perfect. In fact, many Catholics have done bad things, and many Christians have said and done horrible things in the name of religion. No one is denying that. But what I think a lot of us Christians have forgotten is Christ’s true message – one of unconditional love, acceptance, and peace. Did Jesus go around talking about how much better He is than everyone else? No!! Jesus hung out with the lepers, the sinners – people who in those days were shunned by society. One of his most devoted followers was Mary Magdelene, a prostitute. Was she perfect? No!! If you look at the chronicles of Christ’s life, you’ll see that He accepted and loved all. He taught that when someone makes a mistake, you should forgive them. He taught that you should love one another as you love yourself. He taught that God’s love for us is eternal – unchanging, unfailing, and without condition. And that’s what Easter is all about.

happy easter!

    Hey Sarah. you know I’ve never even seen a purple cauliflower if I did I think I’d lose it in the grocers and buy them all!!! In fact I know I would! Thanks for sharing what Easter means to you as a Christian, I agree it is about the root message of spirituality, it’s about love, God, peace and humility too. Oh dear I just put God in a list, it’s ALL about God which means it is all about love. Peace and veganism should go hand in hand, thou shalt not kill. We mustn’t be afraid to be open about what we believe, or there is no diversity and no freedom of speech 🙂

      I couldn’t agree more Amy. Being Christian isn’t very popular these days, but we SHOULD talk about it, in a respectful and open way. Freedom of speech is all about expressing differing opinions, which in my case means talking about the true meaning of Easter! 🙂

    In the Presbyterian church we greet one another on Easter by saying, “Christ has risen .” And the response is, “He has risen indeed.”

    I imagine things are different in the Catholic church, but I love that greeting and as we are just one day from Easter, “Christ has risen!”

    To me, the saying embodies such a powerful reminder that it is our belief and relationship with Christ which is important. I couldn’t agree with you more. There are bad Catholics. But it’s more than just Catholics. There are bad people everywhere who claim to be Christian and it sullies what’s really important. So thank you.

    And, thank you for sharing such a fun recipe! It’s beautiful! I love the purple. Have you seen Heather Christo’s beet pasta? It’s this crazy bright red color. What a spread your tabbouleh and her pasta would make!

      That’s such a beautiful custom! In the Catholic church, we don’t really say that as a greeting, but instead as part of the mass. But you’re right, it’s such a beautiful reminder of why we gather on Easter as a community, to celebrate the miracle of Christ’s resurrection. Thank you so much for your note, Mikaela, and I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter! 🙂
