Cauliflower Spread (Sweet or Savory)
Cauliflower is one of those veggies I tend to go through BIG phases with. I will eat it everyday on everything for a few weeks and then I don’t buy it again for a little while. Usually around spring time my local grocery stores start carrying all the fun colored cauliflower and this is when I always make my cauliflower spreads. They are super fun to incorporate into spring dishes and if you don’t have purple cauliflower in your area - no problem, regular works just fine (it’s just not as fun to eat!) . I have made this spread savory (similar to a hummus in flavor but a bit less thick in texture) and then also plain with mixed in honey or maple syrup and spread on waffles or toast BOTH are delicious so play around with it.
1 c of lightly steamed cauliflower (purple if you want this color)
1 tbs of tahini
1 tbs of water (if the mixture is too thick to blend add a little bit more at a time until it thins out a little)
1 dash of salt pepper and garlic to taste
blend together to desired texture and spread on toast, bagels or crackers
