Everyone’s favorite roasted cauliflower readily transforms into this rich and incredible hummus-like spread. You’ll want to be sure to spread the cauliflower into a single layer on both baking pans, so that it browns evenly. Roasting transforms the flavor of cauliflower, mellowing its faintly bitter bite and giving it a golden color. And cauliflower’s neutral flavor means that it works well with a variety of flavor profiles. Here, combining with lemon zest and juice, fennel seeds, and creamy, rich-tasting Greek yogurt for a stellar healthy dip that you can serve with a variety of vegetables, crackers, or toasted pita wedges.
Plain lowfat Greek yogurt
Fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp, slivered
