This is a fun change from traditional hummus, made with cauliflower instead of chickpeas. Recipe adapted from Paleohacks.
1 head cauliflower, cut into small florets
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons olive oil (extra reserved for presentation)
1 clove garlic
2 packets True Lemon
1 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Dash of both salt and pepper
Paprika, as garnish
1 tablespoon chickpeas or toasted pine nuts, as garnish (optional)
- In a large pot over high heat, add about 3-inches of water and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium, then add cauliflower and cover. Toss frequently for 5-10 minutes until tender. Drain and set aside.
- In a food processor, combine all ingredients (except paprika and garnish) with cauliflower and blend until smooth.
- Pour mixture into a serving bowl, and top with a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkling of paprika, and either chickpeas or toasted pine nuts (if desired).
- Serve with sliced vegetables, olives, tortilla chips, or toasted pita triangles. Enjoy!
