When I first started becoming more aware of my food choices, one of my favorite snacks quickly became carrots and snap peas with hummus. The creamy hummus was a welcomed treat when my 3 pm hunger cravings started! Salty, creamy and fun to dip, hummus is always a great choice.

One thing I didn’t realize at the time was that the upset stomach I felt some afternoons were from going a little overboard on the hummus. I started experimenting with paleo hummus since I still love the idea of creamy hummus to dip my veggies in for a quick and easy snack! Paleo hummus is usually made from veggies instead of beans and is sometimes easier to digest than traditional hummus.

How do you make creamy roasted cauliflower hummus?

  • Start by roasting the cauliflower in the oven until slightly brown. The cauliflower starts to caramelize, which is what makes this creamy roasted cauliflower so amazing! Don’t skip this part, steamed cauliflower just isn’t the same.
  • After the cauliflower is roasted, add it to a food processor with the tahini, lemon juice, salt, garlic powder and water. Process on high until there are no lumps and the hummus is thick and creamy.
  • Store in the fridge or serve immediately with your favorite veggies or chips for dipping.
