Cauliflower Hummus

July 30, 2017

Let’s talk hummus, for the last year hummus has become the new trend in snacking. Not only is hummus healthy, it’s easy and cheap to make. Hummus is flavorful and it’s great as a dip for vegetables or chips and it even works as a spread on sandwiches, replacing high fat spreads such as mayonnaise.  Hummus is usually made from chick peas, extra-virgin olive oil, garlic, lemon, and tahini. What if we took the bean out, and used vegetables as the base, specifically, what if we used cauliflower. Cauliflower, another trending vegetable, is great because it has a mild flavor, and for this recipe when we roast it, it becomes golden brown which helps to bring out some of the natural sweetness. Try this recipe the next time you need to make a hummus, you’ll be amazed at just how great cauliflower hummus can be.
