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 chilli 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.
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 !

Store: store up to 5 days in an airtight container in the fridgeHow 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 !
