Middle Eastern Lamb w/ Cauliflower Hummus

Time travel to the Middle East with this spicy lamb and hummus dish.

I didn’t know if cauliflower could be substituted for garbanzo beans in the hummus, but it didn’t miss a beat.

If you’re looking for a break from traditional holiday fare, this quick and hearty dish is a most welcome interlude.

My Paleo Marin Rating: 4.5 Persimmons

Ingredients & Directions:


Enjoy another post from David Liebovitz here and this easy recipe from Soframiz: Vibrant Middle Eastern Recipes from Sofra Bakery and Cafe.

Substitutions:

1. For the garbanzo beans: 2 cups of cauliflower florets boiled in water just until a fork goes in; drained. Also, use cauliflower water for the garbanzo bean water.

2. I used fresh tomatoes, and "Roasted Tomato Harissa Sauce" by LuLu.  

3. The dish was also delicious with ground dark meat turkey.

Serves 2 for dinner. Can also be served in lettuce cups, with roasted butternut squash, or used as a dip with gluten-free crackers.
