Let’s be honest, shall we?
There are times when we all need to cut back a little. You know when you put on your favorite pair of jeans and they’re a little more “fitted” than usual? I know I’m not alone here, right?
When I’m feeling like this, I try to eat super healthy and super clean. But that can be no fun when you are say, at a party where everyone is dipping chips into large bowls of green guacamole. To not feel left out, I bring along an alternative. Meet Caul-i-mole!
Caul-i-mole is every bit as rich and creamy as gauc, but without the calorie-packed punch that avocado can bring. Full of flavor and texture, and gorgeous pops of color from crunchy vegetables. Dip with endive leaves, and I promise, you will not miss a thing.
Did I also mention it takes 20 minutes to make, tops?
Start by chopping your cauliflower into florets. Drop into boiling water, and cook until fork tender—about 6 to 8 minutes. Drain.
Add the cauliflower and cream cheese to the bowl of a food processor.
Pulse until creamy and smooth.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl.
Add garlic, salt, pepper, cilantro, jalapeño, yellow pepper, red pepper, red onion, and lemon juice. Mix well. Give a taste and make sure that it is seasoned properly. Add more salt and pepper if needed.
Transfer to a serving bowl and dip with endive leaves.
