So we’re coming into winter here in Australia and it’s a time to optimise immune function and avoid seasonal bugs. Food is always the best medicine and prevention is way better than cure – so it’s certainly a good time for me to share this immune boosting Creamy Lemon Thyme Dip. It’s delicious, creamy texture often appeals to kids, so it’s sure to be popular with the whole family.
This dip is especially good because it has a boost from one of natures most protective and nourishing vegetables – cauliflower. Move over oranges, cauliflower is a rich source of Vitamin C and contains many detoxifying, anti inflammatory, antioxidants to protect the body against disease.
The garlic, thyme and rosemary are all immune boosting herbs and the cannellini beans are a fabulous source of fibre, antioxidants and protein (which is so essential for a healthy immune system).
250g (approx. 2 cups) cauliflower florets
1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, picked off stems
½ teaspoon rosemary leaves, finely chopped
Zest one lemon
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Good pinch or two sea salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
