I’m not a cauliflower fan but this healthy cauliflower hummus tastes like a completely new vegetable. The roasted cauliflower and mix of spices gives this dip a very nice texture and an amazing taste. It doesn’t taste like cauliflower at all! Give cauliflower a second chance and make this healthy hummus. I promise that you will fall in love with this humble vegetable again!
To make this Healthy Hummus recipe we need to roast the cauliflower but don’t worry the smell is much nicer than when you boil it. Then all you need to do is to add all the ingredients into a blender, yes it’s that simple! I love to spread it on toasted bread, on my sandwiches and also dip crunchy carrots in it (the healthy option). Don’t forget to garnish your Cauliflower hummus with olive oil and some nuts, sesame seeds or if you have any other garnish ideas, let me know in the comments below!
It tastes great at room temp or chilled. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 -5 days but I don’t think it will last long. It’s so yummy! I also wanted to tell you more about cauliflower, because it has amazing healthy benefits although it is not very popular vegetable nowadays. Cauliflower is very low in calories, rich in fibre and will provide you with a good amount of vitamin C and antioxidants that is why this is a healthy hummus very low in carbs.
Both, taste and health benefits make this recipe perfect for anybody that want to eat tasty and healthy food. Give it a go!
Try this Cauliflower hummus and you won't think it is a boring vegetable anymore. Make this recipe and turn this vegetable in to a healthy and delicious dip!
