Creamy Cauliflower Dressing
This is delicious. You would never guess it is dairy free (it is so rich and creamy). I love the versatility of cauliflower! Add this whole food dressing to your daily raw salads :).
1 1/2 cups chopped cauliflower
1 cup water
1/4 cup lemon juice (1 lemon)
1-2 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon agave nectar (or honey)
1 tablespoon prepared brown mustard (I am not a fan of mustard so I used about a teaspoon)
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
1 tablespoon dried basil or dill OR 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill or basil
Roast garlic with oil, or dry, on low in a small frying pan for 5 minutes or until garlic is lightly browned. Set aside. Place cauliflower and water in a pot and bring to a boil. Cover and cook the cauliflower on low until tender (about 5-10 minutes). Add the cauliflower, water, lemon juice, garlic, oil, mustard, vinegar, agave nectar, salt and pepper to a blender. Blend until smooth. I used our Magic Bullet and blended for 1 minute. (I love the Magic Bullet.) Add chopped herbs or dry herbs and blend briefly. Scrape the dressing out into a bowl or storage container. Enjoy!
