Cauliflower sheep


  • Use a knife to cut the leaves from the cauliflower and cut all around the stem to remove it.
  • Chop the cauliflower into small and large florets. The large florets will be used to make the sheep’s bodies and the small ones will be used to make their heads and legs.
  • If you don’t have many large florets you can connect them with a toothpick to make them larger.
  • The top part of each floret (that looks like a cloud) will be used to make the top part of the sheep and head (so they can look all woolly!), while the stems that are “bare” will be used to create their legs and face.
  • Use a small, sharp knife to clean up most of the stem in order to make them look more like legs and faces.
  • On the small bouquet that will be used to make the head, add 2 whole cloves to create the eyes.
  • Use toothpicks to help you connect the legs and head with the body.
  • The size, shape of the cauliflower as well as how “tight” it is will determine how many sheep you can create.
  • Spread the hummus on a serving platter to create the “green fields” and place the cauliflower sheep over it (so they can graze!) along with finely chopped lettuce leaves.

For the hummus

  • Beat the kidney beans and garlic in a food processor until pureed.
  • Stop the food processor and add the olive oil, tahini, cumin, paprika, chili flakes, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Beat again until you create a nice thick paste. (If you want to make the mixture thinner add some of the water the beans boiled in.)

To serve

  • Serve with rocket leaves and hummus.


You can also boil the cauliflower for 3-4 minutes if you prefer!
