Here's a recipe I'm thinking of trying...I got a good deal on cauliflower last weekend! If anyone tries it before I do, be sure to post and let us know how it came out...

(One note thought...because seeds aren't allowed until OWL, I wouldn't recommend this recipe for someone still doing Induction.)

Cauliflower Hummus
(can be made in larger batches, adjust recipe accordingly)

* 1/5 head of cauliflower
* 2 Tbs sesame tahini
* 1/2 clove of garlic
* 1/8 cup water
* dash of lemon juice
* 1 Tbs olive oil

Boil or steam cauliflower until cooked. Put cauliflower into food processor
with sesame tahini and garlic. Add water. Start to process. Add lemon juice and a tablespoon of olive oil and process until it gets creamy. Add more oil if you want to improve the texture.

I think this would be good as a filling/dip for celery or with a low-carb tortilla. Actually, last week I made a baba ganoush version (i.e., substituting eggplant for the cauliflower) and just ate it as a side dish...tasty!
