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