creamy cauliflower dressing/dip/spread
I use this instead of creamy things...sour cream, salad dressing, mayo, etc
1 head cauliflower, broken into florets
Boil the cauliflower in water and a TBSP of salt (boiling softens it quicker than steaming it) until soft.
Let it cool some, then put in a food processor with a couple TBSP of good mustard (I really like any stone ground mustard in this) and a TBSP of nooch yeast.
Process until smooth. Refrigerate until cool.
this is really good over hot baked potatoes. I've also used it in open face veggie sams (Rainbow Samwiches). It could be the base for a creamy salad dressing, too.
But I like the 321 dressing enough that I've never experimented with that. It's okay as a dip, too.
Yesterday's dinner was good. I didn't want to cook, so I opened a can of black beans, drained and rinsed them. Put them in a bowl with three TBSP or so of Fresh Tomato Dressing (it's a Mary McD recipe that is tangy and spicy and sweet) and I'm planning on just that for lunch today. I also made me some crispy potato skins w/salsa. that was good
Oh. I had baba ganoush and veggie stix for lunch yesterday, and found that the baba was icky. I've made it before without tahini, and it was okay. This time, it was inedible. The texture just wasn't right. So, when I got home I made some tahini and added it. It's high fat, for sure, but I wasn't about to waste two eggplants worth of baba. I would never eat it, if there were no tahini mixed in, so I did that and now I'll be able to eat the baba ganoush. It made all the difference. The texture just was off so badly I could barely gag it down...well, I didn't gag it down. I just ate my veg stix and left the baba sit. But after I added the tahini, it is now quite good.
so, not a low fat day yesterday.
