Cauliflower “Hummus”

Sharing is caring!


As with the beetroot hummus dish, the word “hummus” is in quotes as hummus is arabic for chickpeas and this dish does not contain chickpeas.   As with most dishes, I often think to myself “can this be made with cauliflower for a low carb option?”.    I came across this recipe on the wonderful site of I Breath I’m Hungry which answered my question with a loud “yes, it certainly can, and it’s tasty.  Now you are here, look through all the lovely photos and make your stomach rumble”.   (She does a low carb cauliflower falafel recipe too!!)

Ignore that the dish looks a bit like cold mash potato and tuck in.   I gave a sample to the Chief Taster hesitantly thinking I was going to get it thrown back at me with some comment about the appearance,  but got a request for more, which then developed into a whine for even more when I cut him off (it was meant to be an appetizer whilst I was preparing our main meal).
