Low-Carb Cauliflower Hummus
Quick and easy recipe for a cauliflower hummus.
Servings 6 Servings
- 1 large cauliflower head
- 1 lemon
- 1/4 olive oil extra virgin
- 1/2 tsp salt or more, depending how salty you like your food
- 2 tbsp almond butter
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 1 garlic clove finely chopped
Plus: Cayenne and olive oil to garnish
Cut the florets from your cauliflower head and place them in a large heatproof glass bowl. Cut them as you would cut brocoli to make "bite sized" pieces, or a bit bigger, just so they're somewhat even (for the cooking). Microwave your cauliflower for 10-12 minutes on high heat or until it's completely cooked through. This will depend on the size of your cuts and the power of your microwave.
Move your cooked cauliflower to a large food processor, add olive oil, garlic, almond butter, salt, black pepper and cumin. Juice your lemon and add the juice to the contents in your food processor. Blend until completely smooth. Taste and add salt if needed. If you like your hummus a little more zesty add a little more lemon juice.
Serve in a bowl or a large plate topped with olive oil and a good pinch of cayenne. Enjoy!
