Garamgasalagobi

In honor of the Indian festival of Diwali we bring you one of my favorite dishes ever!

Garam Masala Gobi (The Raw Version)
by Chef Joel Odhner of RawLifeLine.com

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 cup brazil nuts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • lemon to taste
  • 3 T garam masala
  • pinch of cayenne
  • 1 bunch cilantro for garnish

Directions
Place bite size pieces of cauliflower in large bowl. Blend nuts, oil, lemon, cayenne, salt, masala until smooth. Toss cauliflower in sauce and place in a dehydrator 1-2 hours. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro.

Don't have a dehydrator? Use your oven! Place temp settings on low and open the oven door every so often to cool the dish down. Use an oven thermometer to monitor temperatures to try and stay lower than 120 F.

I just made this and can I say YUM! It was extremely satisfying, for my daal cravings.. and I don't really like cauli that much. I will add 2 things here:
1. It turned out NOTHING like the picture perhaps due to my mediocre raw culinary skills? and 2. I had to add 1/4 cup water or so to get the sauce consistency to coat the cauli. VERDICT: Definitely make again.
