Low carb cauliflower “hummus”

I’ve been craving hummus lately and did some research online for a recipe that is low carb. Found several recipes using cauliflower instead of chickpeas and tweaked them to suit my taste. This is pretty delicious, give it a try!

Ingredients:
2 Tbs olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
3 cloves garlic (or more depending on how garlicky you like it, peeled and sliced)
1 head cauliflower, roughly chopped
2 Tbs tahini paste
3 Tbs lemon juice (I used freshly squeezed)
1/2 tsp cumin powder
2 Tbs olive oil
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
4 Tbs water (more or less depending on desired consistency)

Method:
Combine chopped cauliflower with 2 Tbs olive oil
Add salt and garlic
Mix together till cauliflower is coated with olive oil
Place in baking tray and bake at 425C for about 15 – 20 mins or till cauliflower is cooked through and nicely caramelized

You should end up with about 3 cups of cauliflower after roasting

Put cauliflower mixture into blender and add the rest of the ingredients. Blend till a smooth consistency

Place hummus into a bowl and top with some paprika and olive oil. Enjoy! I like this with low carb crackers and also as a base on sandwiches instead of mayo.
