1 Tbsp Grape seed oil
1/4 Cup almond meal
1/4 Tsp garlic salt
1/4 Tsp Black pepper
4 Oz baby food carrots
1 Can Coconut milk
1 Tbsp Tahini
1 Tbsp Olive oil, for extra creaminess, optional
1 Tsp Onion powder
3/4 Tsp ground mustard
1 Tbsp Fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 Tsp Salt
Cut cauliflower into 1/2-inch pieces, then into 1/2-inch strips, to create "macaroni-shaped" rectangle pieces (many of the florets will crumble, which is normal).
In a large deep-sided pan, melt olive oil over medium-high heat.
Add almond meal, garlic salt, and pepper. Cook just until the almond meal begins to taste. Transfer to a small bowl, set aside.
Place cauliflower in a pan. Add carrots, coconut milk, tahini, olive oil, onion powder, ground mustard, salt and pepper.
Cover and cook 10 minutes, until boiling.
Remove the lid and cook until sauce begins to thicken and cauliflower is very tender. Sprinkle with almond meal "breadcrumbs" and parsley.
Did you know?
A surprising fact about cauliflower is that it actually contains quite a few antioxidants. Cauliflower contains caffeic acid, ferulic acid, beta-carotene, rutin, beta-cryptoxanthin, cinnamic acid, kaempferol, and quercetin to name a few.
Because it is so rich in nutrients, cauliflower has been linked to helping prevent against colorectal and prostate cancer and also plays a role in regulating blood cholesterol.
