Paleo & Vegan Cauliflower Hummus

This Paleo & Vegan Cauliflower Hummus is an easy, delicious dip that will please a crowd!cauliflower hummus

Remember when I shared this recipe for Paleo Greek Lamb Burgers? And I said I lost the recipe for the yummy hummus that I used? Well, I recovered the recipe!

Last weekend, I remade this hummus to make sure the recipe worked! The first time I tried to re-make this hummus, I added way too much garlic . . . and it was basically inedible. It was kind of like vampire poison — and human poison, too.

Luckily, my second try yielded MUCH better results! This cauliflower hummus is super creamy and flavorful, and it doesn’t taste like cauliflower at all! I promise.

Let’s break this hummus down. It starts with an entire head of cauliflower, which we cook in the microwave. Once the cauliflower is soft, we blend it with a few spices until it’s super creamy and smooth. And then . . . we eat! I suggest rainbow carrots and cucumbers, but use whatever you want as a dipper!

This hummus is perfect for a crowd because it fits virtually any diet! As you may know, hummus is a vegan/vegetarian staple, but it’s typically made with chickpeas. Read: not Paleo. I was extremely skeptical when I saw “cauliflower hummus” for the first time, but my curiosity got the better of me. And you know what? Cauliflower mimics chickpeas really well. My mom is a huge fan of hummus, and she said that this version tastes just as good as other hummuses that she’s tried! (Hummuses? Is that a word?!)

If you want your cauliflower hummus to look extra fancy, I suggest adding a drizzle of oil and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Then, you can be the hostess with the mostess.

Alternatively, you could eat the entire batch (by yourself, of course) with chips and veggies for dinner. I think that’s a balanced meal.
