Hummus with roasted cauliflower and amba mango sauce
When I'm really hungry, it can happen that I get "slightly" hangry. I sometimes notice this myself and sometimes I am politely told to smile or to stop banging my head against something. The prospect of hummus can normalise my behaviour a bit. And if there's a nice topping, like roasted cauliflower and fruity amba sauce, I might even smile again.
Hummus x Cauliflower x Amba
On a good mezze table there is always a well-filled plate of makali. These are mixed, deep-fried vegetables. Cauliflower is a must. And since I personally like to move from one plate to the next and dip my pita bread directly into all the little bowls, I sometimes end up with very tasty combinations.
The combination of creamy hummus, the roasted flavours of the cabbage and the fruity notes of amba gave me a brief pause in my combine foraging move: "Oh, this definitely needs to go on the blog!"
And so I made this delicious creation and added some caramelised sumac onions and chopped almonds. Everything is garnished with fresh parsley, some sesame seeds and black cumin. I roasted the cauliflower in the oven to reduce the fat. Of course, you can also deep-fry the cauliflower 😉 I'm not a fan of it.
The recipe is for 4 people as a main course or for 8 people as a starter.
