Cauliflower Hummus Dip

The flavor fresh steamed cauliflower is so mild that you’re able to pretty much control the flavor of your hummus with the spices you add.  Have fun and make a spicy version by adding cayenne, or up the flavor ante with some extra garlic. Now, I did try it raw as well, and it was tasty, but not as creamy.

Drizzle your finished dip with some olive oil and a pretty sprinkle of sweet paprika.

Here’s what you need:

  • I used a half head of cauliflower, steamed
  • 2 Tablespoons tahini
  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 clove garlic
  • juice from 1 lime
  • dash of sea salt and black pepper
  • pinch of cumin, paprika, garlic powder, turmeric, and onion powder

  1. Throw all of the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Taste and add more seasoning as you see fit.
  3. Serve with sliced veggies, olives and homemade almond flour crackers.

I thought I would share the recipe I made with my cauliflower and carrots from the CSA box a couple of weeks ago. It was really good. Thanks for sharing recipes with us, it is so helpful.
