I am having a pantry week.
Like, only eat food that you can find in the house..
A head of cauliflower is just asking for paprika.
The remaining 2 corn tortillas.
And some kind of bean blitzed thing. It isn’t a hummus, but it is inspired by it (and using whatever I have).
Quite the delicious lunch, actually..
- a small head of cauliflower
- a nice glug of olive oil
- a healthy sprinkle of smoked paprika
- a can of garbanzo beans, drained and washed
- two big spoonfuls of Greek yogurt (¼ cup?)
- a healthy dose of green spicy salsa (¼ cup?)
- juice of ½ lemon
- a drizzle of water (2 or 3 tablespoons?)
- some lettuce
- corn totillas
Roast the cauliflower by cutting it into small florets, tossing with the oil and paprika, and roasting in a 425 degree oven for 30-40 minutes, turning once or twice. I like a nice crunch on mine.
For the beans, blitz up the beans with the yogurt, salsa, lemon juice, and a drizzle of water. I used my magic bullet and just added water as needed, bit by bit, til I was happy with the consistency. The idea here is to use fridge stuff- what do you have that is open that might work here?
Warm up the tortillas and then smear on some bean paste, add greens and then some cauliflower.
