How to make this spicy cauliflower sauce?
This vegan sauce is made with cauliflower, onions, garlic, and ginger that have been sprinkled with coriander, smoked paprika, and turmeric and then roasted until tender.
These spiced and roasted ingredients are tossed into a blender with coconut milk, lime juice, jalapeños, and parsley and blended until they result in a lusciously thick and creamy concoction.
I usually prefer to keep this vegan sauce on the thick side. However, if you would rather thin it out, just add another half cup of coconut milk (or more) until this is the consistency you would like.
If you prefer a milder sauce, then, carefully cut the jalapeños lengthwise and, using a pairing knife, cut out the white pith and seeds. Remove as much of the seeds as you can. Then you can enjoy the delicious flavor the jalapeño adds to this sauce, without the spiciness.
If you do not have lime on hand, you can use lemon.
And, if you prefer not to use cilantro, you can use parsley instead. Coriander and cilantro are from the same plant with coriander being the seeds and cilantro being the leaves and stalks. So, while using parsley will change the taste of this sauce, the coriander will still ad a delicious smoky taste to it.
As far as the spices such as turmeric, coriander, and smoked paprika, I would not recommend changing these out as these spices, in the quantities used, seemed to add yet another delicious layer of flavor to this sauce.
This sauce is delicious as a dip or starter soup. However, our favorite way to enjoy this sauce is to pair it with Pure Farmland Italian-Style Plant-Based Meatballs for a delicious and satisfying plant-based meal.
