Raw Cauliflower Pilaf with apricots, pistachios and sprouts

I have been wanting to make a raw cauliflower dish for such a long time, and today was the day! When processed in the food processor, the raw cauliflower really does resemble cous cous! This would also be great as a filling for cabbage leaves or collard leaves or even nori rolls. I added a dollop of my Green Pea Hummus on top also and it was delicious!
