🧈 Here’s how To make your own Ghee.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees f. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl combine the tomato puree, melted butter, and spices. Whisk together really well using a fork.
Dredge or dip your cauliflower slices into this sauce mixture and gently push and firmly press each piece to coat really well with the sauce mixture.
