A few nights ago Michelle and I enjoyed a super easy and tasty dinner! We had a head of cauliflower on hand and decided to make a sauce using cauliflower.
Pure2raw Recipe: Cauliflower Hemp Seed Sauce
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1/4 of a zucchini
- a good 2 cups of dry roasted cauliflower*
- handful of fresh basil
- 1 tsp sea salt (we used black lava sea salt)
- 1/2 cup hemp seeds
- 1/4 cup water
- 1-2 tsp miso
- 1/8 tsp cayenne
* To make the dry roasted cauliflower – chop the cauliflower, place chopped pieces on a cookie sheet and place in a hot 375 degree oven. Roast for about 20-25 minutes. I also sprinkled some water on them. You do not have to dry roast your cauliflower – you can either steam or roast with oil or even leave raw.
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend till creamy!
Time to make: 5 minutes
Servings: depends can be enough for 2 or used as a dip for multiple servings
This easy cauliflower hemp seed sauce turned out great. We were really pleased with the texture and simple flavors with a little kick from the cayenne. We kept this cauliflower hemp seed sauce on the thick side which makes a perfect creamy sauce for kelp noodles!
To make our dinner complete we took our newest sauce and poured it over a bowl of kelp noodles, spiralized zucchini, spinach and arugula. Perfection!
We have noticed that our bodies digest cauliflower better when we slightly cook or steam them, plus take a digestion enzyme before eating.
I really enjoy having these kinds of dairy-free sauces that taste just as creamy and smooth as regular sauces. Michelle and I both were satisfied after eating this yummy dinner. I guess we just love kelp noodles too.
Now you do not have to use this sauce just over kelp noodles or zucchini pasta. It would be a great on any pasta or even used as a dip. And it is easy to change up the flavors like adding in cilantro, parsley or cumin. Even adding in nutritional yeast or tahini for more flavor would be a nice touch!
Perfect simple dinner that is full of nutrition and veggies for a hot summer day to keep you going!
