This makes for a lovely dinner side dish or it can even be a main dish for lunch.


1 small or medium cauliflower head

1 cup raw cashews

1/2 tsp (or more) coriander powder

Salt to taste

Optional – add little curry powder and perhaps some sautéed garlic/shallots if you want a more robust flavor



Steam cauliflower over gently boiling water until it’s as tender as you like it.

While cauliflower cooks, get out your blender and blend the raw cashews until powdery.

When the cauliflower is done, set aside to cool.

Then add one cup of the water used for steaming the cauliflower to the blender and blend with cashews until it’s a sauce-like consistency – not too thick.  Add more water as needed.

Now add spices and salt and blend briefly, taste, and adjust seasonings as you wish.

Cut cauliflower in wedges & serve with the sauce poured over.
