This easy appetizer offers incredible flavour in dip-able form. The tandoori spice blends is an easy, almost-effortless way to incorporate a variety of Indian spices to this tangy dip. Roasting the cauliflower adds tremendous depth and also removes some of the water, concentrating the flavour.

Ingredients

Uncooked cauliflower

1 pound(s), florets (about 1 lb)

Olive oil

2 tsp(s)

Tandoori spice mix

1½ tsp(s)

Table salt

1 tsp(s)

Plain lowfat Greek yogurt

cup(s)

Fresh lime juice

2 tsp(s)

Water

2 tbsp(s)

Cumin seeds

½ tsp(s)

Cayenne pepper

1 pinch

Cilantro

3 tbsp(s), chopped (plus extra for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, toss together cauliflower, oil, tandoori spice and salt; spoon onto prepared pan in a single layer. Roast, stirring halfway through, 30 minutes.
  3. Combine roasted cauliflower with remaining ingredients in a food processor or blender; process until smooth, adding more water if needed to achieve desired thickness. Spoon into a serving bowl; garnish with cilantro.
  4. Serving size: 1/4 cup

Notes

Be sure to spread the oil and spice-coated cauliflower in a single layer on the baking pan to ensure it cooks evenly and browns nicely. When selecting cauliflower, look for firm heads with tightly compacted florets that are free from blemishes. Try this dip served with crudité or baked pita chips at your next party or family gathering.
