Cauliflower No-Sotto with Sun Dried Tomato Tahini Cream – 3rd Place Winner 2015 Recipe Contest


This super creative and delicious dish is gluten-free, virtually carb-free and except for a little sun dried tomato oil, fat free. This is normally a recipe for flavor failure, but not this time. We were all pleasantly surprised by this dish's big big flavor and pretty color, so much that it was a finalist in our recipe contest! We love it when you home chef folks become artists and share your creativity with us!
