I never thought there would come a day when I would say this but… I ate cauliflower this afternoon. And I liked it. I want to give a hug thank you to Allison who suggested I make hummus with the free cauliflower I scored last week. HUMMUS CAULIFLOWER! Who knew? Seriously, this stuff is really, really tasty. And it’s good for you too. Lets just hope there will be some left for the Handsome Husband when he gets home from work this afternoon.
Adapted from a Cave Woman recipePrint
One large head of cauliflower, steamed
6 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
2 tablespoons tahini sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Place everything in a blender and puree.
Serve with pita chips or fresh vegetables.
If you are prepared to shell out an arm and a leg for a good, quality blender, then I highly recommended the Blendtec Total Blender. Sure, it sounds like the deck of an air craft carrier when it is turned on… But man oh man will it blend anything.
