I am addicted to sides and sauces. Why? I love tasty things and if I am eating a life abundant in proteins, veggies and salads I want flavours.
Whilst traditional hummus is fine, some of us are trying to lower the amount of carbs in our diet… I know those pesky covid kilos are real.
Try this recipe and tell us what you think? Do you have any other sides and sauces you want to share… please do!
1 medium cauliflower
2 clove garlic
1 cup tahini
2/3 cup lemon juice
Bring about 4cm salted water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Chop cauliflower into bite-sized chunks.
Simmer cauliflower, covered for 10 minutes or until cauliflower is tender. Drain. Run some cold water into the saucepan to cool it down. Discard the water and return the warm cauliflower to the pan. You could just roast all of this instead but this is far easier.
Add garlic, tahini, and lemon juice. Puree with your stick blender until the texture is as smooth as you like. Taste and season generously with salt and more lemon if needed.
Enjoy as a dip for celery, fennel, carrots or on your fish and chicken.
