Yield: 12

Ingredients:

  • 1 cauliflower head large (about 4 cups medium to large diced)
  • 1 tablespoon macadamia nut oil
  • 3 ribs celery (about 1 1/2 cups small diced)
  • 1/2 red onion (about 1/2 cup small diced)
  • 1 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 cup vegenaise or mayonnaise organic sugarless
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard organic (yellow or grain mustards are great too)
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • salt (optional) - to taste

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375F (convection roast is great)
  • Line a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper. Toss the cauliflower pieces with macadamia nut oil and spread out on the sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes or until browned and roasted, but not dark. Once roasted, remove from the oven to cool completely
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the diced celery, red onion, chopped cilantro, mayonnaise or vegenaise, mustard, paprika, salt and pepper. Hold in refrigerator until cauliflower has completely cooled.
  • Fold cauliflower into mayonnaise mixture and enjoy!

Notes:

Note:  When shopping for mayonnaise, choose sugarless, without unnecessary preservatives, and use the best, cold-pressed oils (NOT canola, safflower, soy, or vegetable oils).  Better yet, make your own by blending olive oil (or avocado oil, or macadamia nut oil), with a light vinegar and yolks from a couple of hard boiled eggs.  Or use fresh avocado and a little lemon juice. No egg required!
Variations:  Add any of your favorite chopped herbs like basil, parsley, and thyme. For brain boosting benefits add turmeric, coriander, fresh garlic, minced red bell peppers, and some shredded beets.  You could also add a bit of you favorite chopped leafy greens and some pumpkin seeds for healthy fats and more crunch!
