new appreciation for cauliflower


I've
never
been
a fan
of cauli-
flower.
I mean,
I liked
it in
soup,
or in
a hot
curry,
or
roast-
ed with
plenty
of oil
& salt.
But
raw...
no way.
Until today...

7am- smoothie: 1/2 banana, 2 nectarines, handful of spinach, 1 tsp. tahini, liquid DHA, water.
9:30am- 1 apple; 6 dried apricots; 6 baby carrots; 2 small pickles.
11am- smoothie: 1 banana, 1/2 a nectarine, 1/4 cup cashews, water.
1:30pm- carrot "chips"; "mashed" dill cauliflower: cauliflower, cashews, lemon juice, garlic, salt, dill, thyme, water.
3:30pm- the leftover cauliflower mash; 1 banana.
5:30pm- cool miso soup: water, white miso, konbu, garlic, ginger, jalapeno, olive oil, lemon juice, sliced shiitake, sliced oyster mushrooms, scallion.

The cauliflower dip is my take on the "mashed potatoes" recipe in Juliano's RAW. The miso soup is my version of a recipe I found on Raw Freedom Community here.

Ryan and Nate liked the cauliflower dip so much they had to have their own plate. And after Maia got up from her nap she ate the leftovers with me by the spoonful.

Cauliflower mash actually sounds like it would be delish! Thanks for sharing the ideas!

That sounds really delicious. Any idea of possible amounts of things for the cauliflower mash? For those of us not good at just throwing it together :D
