Cauliflower hummus is a delicious paleo alternative to traditional hummus, which contains garbanzo beans. You may remember a previous post with this recipe. Everyone loved it so much, I decided to include in my Top 5 Cauliflower recipes. Just like traditional hummus, this Cauliflower version is very versatile. Make a great appetizer served wi4th fresh vegetables and your favorite Paleo cocktail!
Tasty hummus made from cauliflower and tahini instead of garbanzo beans.
1 head cauliflower, washed, cut into smallish pieces
8 oz tahini
2 garlic cloves (more if you like it super garlicky, but raw garlic can be strong)
juice of 2 lemons
2 tsp ground cumin
sea salt to taste
Steam cauliflower until tender. Once it's tender, drain out any excess water. Then sauté in the pan until the cauliflower is drier.
In your food processor or using your immersion blender, blend the cauliflower, garlic, lemon juice, cumin, tahini, and sea salt together until smooth. It should be tangy, garlicky, earthy, and delicious.
