HOW TO MAKE CAULIFLOWER HUMMUS
It’s time to make the best homemade hummus! This nutritious spread is loaded with flavor, and naturally dairy-free and gluten-free, too. And I bet you’re wondering how to turn cauliflower into hummus…
First we’ll roast the cauliflower, until it’s super soft. You want SOFT, not crisp-tender!
PRO TIP: Make sure all the cauliflower is touching the baking sheet and touching the pan. This will ensure that it cooks evenly and gets adequately roasted. (You want it golden brown and charred.)
Then, we blend together all the cauliflower hummus ingredients, until it’s smooth and creamy:
- Roasted cauliflower
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Lemon juice
- Sea salt
PRO TIP: You can adjust the thickness of the cauliflower hummus by adding in a little bit more water. Start with 1 tablespoon at a time and increase more until you reach desired texture.
To make this a bit fancy, spread the roasted cauliflower hummus onto a bowl or plate and drizzle with olive oil and top with parsley, paprika, cracked pepper, and even kalamata olives.
Personally, I just sprinkle with paprika and scoop it up with cucumber slices. But check out more ideas for how to serve cauliflower hummus below!
CAN I HAVE HUMMUS ON A LOW CARB DIET?
No, typically hummus is not low carb and isn’t suitable for a keto low carb diet. BUT, if you’re making my keto hummus recipe, then you definitely can! This cauliflower hummus recipe is low carb, keto, paleo, vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free. And FULL of FLAVOR.
Most of the hummus you’ll find at grocery stores is made with chickpeas, so they are not low carb. Stick to making it yourself, and you can indulge with the best hummus made right at home!
CAN YOU MAKE THIS CAULIFLOWER HUMMUS RECIPE AHEAD?
Yes, you can make this cauliflower hummus recipe ahead! If you plan meals in advance, this is an excellent option for snacks or a side dish to go with your lunch.
Make as many batches of healthy hummus as you want then store it in the refrigerator for 4-7 days. Keep it covered in an airtight container, so it lasts longer.
HOW TO FREEZE ROASTED CAULIFLOWER HUMMUS
You can freeze roasted cauliflower hummus if you can’t eat it all or want to have some for later. Just keep the paleo hummus in a container with a lid that’s freezer safe and airtight.
On average, keto hummus will last 4-6 months in the freezer.
When you are ready to serve, the best thing to do is to set the paleo hummus in the fridge overnight then it will be ready to eat. Or if you are taking it in your lunch, you can toss it in your lunchbox, and it should be defrosted in no time.
