Instructions



  1. Preheat oven to 425F.




  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.




  3. Spread cauliflower florets out on your baking sheet and roast until the florets are fork-tender and browning at the edges, about 12 minutes.




  4. Transfer roasted cauliflower to a blender with and puree with almond milk, hummus, nutritional yeast, miso, onion powder, garlic powder, a very light dash of nutmeg and an even lighter dash of cayenne, if using.




  5. Puree until smooth, adding another ¼-cup almond milk if necessary, or leave chunky.




  6. Taste, adding more nutritional yeast as desired (I usually add 2 tsp more) plus salt and black pepper.




  7. Heat over low to warm if necessary.




  8. Toss with cooked pasta or use as a dip.





Chef's Note: 3 cups cauliflower is about 9-oz or one-third a medium head.
