Servings 2


  • 2 whole lobsters
  • 4 lemons halved
  • 1 head of cauliflower about 4-5 cups was all I got from mine
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 6 cups vegetable broth or water, but the broth is yummier
  • 6 tblspn minced garlic
  • 1 small onion minced
  • 3 tblspn vegan buttery sticks I like Earth's Best the best--heh
  • cup coconut milk or more, if you want your sauce thinner--I do not
  • ¼ tspn basil just a pinch
  • ¼ tspn oregano you know what I mean
  • salt and papper to taste


  1. In an adequately sized pot, place the vegetable broth and cauliflower over medium-to-high heat.
  2. Bring to a boil for 5-10 mintues or until the cauliflower is super-tender.
  3. Start a pot to boil over the stove that is adequately sized for the lobster and drop the halves of lemon into the water.
  4. While that's boiling, place the vegan buttery stick, mushrooms, onion and garlic in a pan over high heat.
  5. You want the onion and garlic to cook just long enough that they get good and hot--and smell great. Then take them off. If you cook them too long, it will kill the yummy flavor of the cauliflower.
  6. Fish the mushrooms out of the garlic/onion mixture and set aside.
  7. Place lobster in the boiling pot.
  8. Remove the cauliflower from the broth, but save the broth.
  9. Place cauliflower, ½ cup broth, garlic-onion-buttery stick mixture, basil, oregano and coconut milk into your food processor.
  10. Blend, baby, blend. For like 5 mintues. Or pulse it. Whatever floats your boat to get that combination smooth, smooth, smooth. It took me a while. And, even then, it was a little lumpier than I would have liked, but my food processor is old (can someone say "Santa?").
  11. Remove, taste, add salt and pepper, as necessary.
  12. Mix-in the mushrooms gently--they fall apart easily.
  13. Remove lobster from the pot.
  14. Serve immediately with some JaM Cab...mmmmm...
