Cauliflower, my favourite vegetable as a low carber and the wonders that you can perform with it. Not the boiled to sogginess you got as a child (well, in my house…both my grandparents were ghastly cooks and I still feel cheated about that…none of that picture post card yummy granny made cakes for us…the horror stories I could tell…and probably will…).
Cauliflower Roasted? Yummy. Cauliflower Riced and used as pizza base? Yum. Now thrown on the bbq and equally just as tasty. Pour a nice Tahini and herb dressing over it and you have yourself a tasty dish. Tahini is used a lot in Middle Eastern dishes and is in the popular hummus dish! Nom Nom!
1 cauliflower, cut into florets
2 tblspn olive oil
4 tblspns tahini
1 garlic clove
1/3 cup olive oil
