Description

Kelly and I were messing around with cauliflower this week and we came up with this fun idea to turn it into a dip. Fun turned into a dip tasting party. And the dip? Well, it turned out freaking unreal. Kelly preferred it with less Gruyere. I say pile it on … so the recipe below calls for all of it. It’s delicious. Do yourself a favor and make it. Yum.

Ingredients

  • 1 head Cauliflower (Medium Size)
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Chopped
  • ½  Shallot, Chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Green Onion, Chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Grated Parmesan
  • ½ cups Grated Gruyere (To Mix In Dip)
  • 1 Tablespoon Cream Cheese
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Pepper
  • ¼ cups Grated Gruyere (For Sprinkling)

Preparation

Note: Recipe requires two 6-8 ounce oven safe ramekins or one 14 ounce oven safe ramekin.

1. Wash cauliflower and remove any wilted outside leaves. With a sharp knife, remove most of the core from the bottom. Cut it into florets. Fill a medium saucepan with 1/4″ of water and bring to a boil. Add your trimmed cauliflower florets. Cover the pan and cook cauliflower for 8 minutes or until completely fork tender. When done, remove from heat and drain off the water.

2. Preheat oven to 425 F and place steamed cauliflower into your food processor or blender.

3. Add garlic, shallots, green onion, butter, and olive oil. Blend for 1 minute to 2 minutes until well combined and smooth.

4. Stir in Parmesan, 1/2 cup Gruyere, cream cheese, salt, and pepper. Spoon into oven-proof ramekins. Set ramekins on a baking sheet if desired.

5. Sprinkle with remaining Gruyere and bake in preheated oven at 425 F for 10-15 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown around the edges. Serve hot with rustic bread.

This is amazing. I made it as instructed the first time and with no cheese the second time. Both were great. So different, good for you and great flavor. I tend to diet every other week so I like things I can cut the calories on if I want.

I LOVED this! I have been a crazy cauliflower fanatic lately so when I saw this I just had to try it! It’s creamy, the flavor is amazing, and it’s got cheese. Need I say more. I’ll definitely be making this again.
