While roasting an entire head of cauliflower from a recipe found on Huffington Post, I discovered the yogurt marinade was delicious uncooked all by itself. None of the ingredients require cooking in order to be safe or tasty so I decided to play around with them and make a veggie dip.
The original recipe called for Greek yogurt, but I used Almond yogurt because it's tasty and I have lactose issues. One 6 ounce container will make a small amount of dip. Use more yogurt for larger servings.

I stirred in about a tablespoon or less of lime juice. I'm sure fresh lime would be awesome.
The seasonings I used are:
- chile powder
- garlic powder
- curry powder
- kosher salt
- black pepper
The roasted cauliflower recipe asks for large amounts of the spices (full teaspoons and tablespoons); but that's too much for a raw dip. I generously sprinkled in the spices according to my personal taste preferences.

Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime salt-free seasoning was the perfect addition with the other spices and lime juice.
I also sprinkled in a little nutritional yeast because it's healthy, tasty, and let's face it - I add it to almost everything.
I stirred in all the spices into the yogurt until it was fairly smooth. The yogurt can be a little lumpy initially.
