Creamy Cauliflower Sauce

I was hunting around for a delicious sauce to use on a salad that was really tasty but still “clean”. I found a few different recipes using cauliflower, this is what I ended up with. It is kinda creamy, without the cream and would make a great sauce on zucchini pasta or tossed through a Broccoli Salad, you could even use it as a spread or on your pizza base.

Cauliflower is from the same family as broccoli and cabbage, it contains many essential B-complex vitamins and loads of vitamin C. Cauliflower contains several anti cancer phyto-chemicals which have proven benefits against prostate, breast, cervical, colon, ovarian cancers. Let’s hear it for cauliflower!

1 golden shallot, roughly chopped
1/2 zucchini
2 cups roasted cauliflower (chop cauliflower into chunks, place on baking paper on a baking tray, sprinkle with water, roast for about 20-30 mins on 180C)
1 tsp tahini
Pinch Himilayan Rock Salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
1/4 cup flaxseeds
1/2 cup basil leaves
3-4 cloves roasted garlic- OPTIONAL
1/2 cup water (you can add a bit more if you want a thinner sauce)
Juice 1/2 lemon

Put all ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth. Easy Peasey.
