This cauliflower hummus is a deliciously smooth, creamy cold dip for your next party platter. It makes a perfect cold dip for raw veggie, nachos or to simply spread into sandwiches. Cooking light and enjoying clean eating recipes has never been so easy! This dip is ready in less than 20 minutes and you won’t miss the chickpeas!

Cauliflower Hummus Paleo Hummus recipe

My family is obsessed with hummus. Really! Did you see that fun movie ‘You Don’t mess with the Zohan’ where people dip anything into hummus? Well, that’s us. I think it’s getting worse since my husband turned vegan.

He swears by my simple hummus recipe with walnuts oil. I agree that’s a killer recipe. Each week, I am trying to surprise my family with a new hummus flavor.

They love my pesto chili hummus but today, I wanted to surprise them A LOT with a chickpea-free hummus: a paleo cauliflower hummus recipe. Cauliflower is an amazing substitute for chickpeas in hummus. Really! Who would have thought? It makes the creamiest hummus ever.

All you need to make a creamy cauliflower hummus are the ingredients below:

  • Cauliflower florets – steamed in the microwave or a steamer.
  • Tahini paste – I love tahini in hummus as it makes a very smooth creamy dip. If you don’t like the flavor of tahini, you can use Greek Yogurt as a low-carb substitute if you don’t like it. Note that using yogurt makes this cauliflower hummus lighter and fluffy.
  • Extra virgin olive oil – any vegetable oil will work but olive oil has healthy fat and a delicious flavor to this cauliflower dip.
  • Lemon juice
  • Smoked paprika to serve – or paprika but really, smoked paprika brings this dip to the next level!

Cauliflower hummus paleo, no chickpeas at all!

What I love the most about cauliflower hummus is the fresh taste. Don’t get confused! It’s super thick, smooth, and creamy. But it has that delicious fresh vegetable taste that makes all the difference with chickpeas.

And little confession here, this is way easier to digest too, if you see what I mean. So give it a try, dip any veggie, chips or spread this into sandwiches. You won’t regret it!

  • Place the broken cauliflower florets in a small glass bowl. Add water. Cover with a plate or microwave-proof lid.
  • Microwave 10-15 minutes or until soft and tender.
  • Remove from the microwave, uncover and cool down 5 minutes - until all the steam has evaporated.
  • Place the soft cauliflower florets into a food processor with the S blade attachment.
  • Add the tahini, olive oil, salt, garlic cloves, and lemon juice.
  • Process on high speed for 1 minute or until it forms a very smooth and creamy white hummus.
  • Transfer into a dip serving bowl and use a spoon to create swirls on top. 
  • Drizzle extra olive oil and add a sprinkle of smoked paprika. 
  • Refrigerate at least one hour before serving. 
Store: store up to 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge
How to use it: Use as a dip for raw veggies or as a spread in a sandwich. 
Steaming cauliflower: I love my microwave, it's a fast way to steam veggie! But you can also steam the cauliflower in a steamer following your steamer instruction. I don't have a steamer so I go for the microwave. 
Roasting cauliflower: if you love roasted cauliflower flavor, go for it! Roast the florets in the oven for 20-30. Make sure you rub them with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. It will add a delicious roasted flavor to this dip!

  1. Hi. Can this hummus be frozen in smaller batches and taken out as needed. Want to make and include in school lunches.

  2. 5 stars
    Fabulous! Just as delicious as chickpea hummus, if not better. Love it. Perfect texture & flavor. Thank you.

    • True! Very nice option too a bit more time consuming but worth it ! Thanks for sharing the tips with us. XOXO Carine.
