If you love sandwiches, wraps and pita pockets but have decided to eat more of a plant-based diet and are looking for a tasty, satisfying snack or meal on the go, then you’ll love this recipe for creamy cauliflower spread.
It’s a fantastic substitution for tuna or egg spread and is delicious on a whole grain bun with a few fresh peas, spring onion and a squeeze of lemon.
For a quick meal or side dish, try it as a stuffing for mushrooms drizzled with a dash of olive oil, sprinkled with hemp parmesan and baked in the oven until light brown on top.
The spread can also be used as a dip with vegetable sticks and seed crackers.
Creamy Cauliflower Spread
2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp Himalayan salt
1 -2 tsp whole grain mustard to taste
1/4 tsp fresh chopped oregano or 1/2 tsp dried
1/4 – 1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
1/4 tsp Spike seasoning – available at most organic stores, or you can use a few dashes of lemon pepper and Moroccan seasoning.
Cut the cauliflower in florets and steam until soft but not mushy. Place into a bowl and mash with the rest of the ingredients, adding the mayo and lemon a little at a time to ensure it’s not too soft – taste seasonings along the way and adjust according to your taste buds.
