Raw Cauliflower Cucumber Rolls

cucumberI spent a lot of time at the Farmer’s Market last weekend and have been enjoying awesome salads, juices, and smoothies all week! For some reason cauliflower always seems to stump me though, I dislike eating it raw and don’t love its consistency in smoothies. I decided to try a raw cauliflower roll recipe that I found online and was not disappointed!

These rolls are the perfect farmers market treat. They are fresh and crunchy with a mildly sweet flavor. I couldn’t stop eating them!

Ingredients:

  • 3 large cauliflower florets
  • 1 T sultanas/raisins OR 1 pitted date
  • Handful parsley
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • 2 T raw tahini OR 2 T raw nut butter
  • 1 Pinch Chili powder
  • 2 Small Cucumbers (use the little ones for pickling, not the gigantic ones)

Instructions

  1. Thinly slice the cucumbers and lay on paper towel to absorb some of the excess water.
  2. Put everything except the cucumbers in a food processor and blitz a few times until the mixture has a pebble-like consistency.
  3. Spread about a tablespoon of the mixture onto the length of each cucumber.
  4. Gently roll up and spear with a toothpick to hold together.

Let me know if you try it! I was even thinking these rolls might be a good appetizer for summertime dinner parties.
