If you don’t make your own hummus, you really should. It’s both easy and cheap, and few things are more rewarding than snacking on freshly made hummus.
Those of you that follow the blog already know that when Janette and I make a batch of hummus, we try to do something a little different than the standard flavors you would find at the store. Previously, we have made beet hummus and avocado hummus.
With recipes like cauliflower mashed potatoes, whole roasted cauliflower, and cauliflower breadsticks surging in popularity, I thought it would be a good idea to use it as the base for this hummus. What to flavor it with? How about some flavorful roasted garlic. Now we’re onto something!
Overall, I was really pleased with how the cauliflower hummus came out. It has a nice texture, subtly nutty flavor with the garlic packing a slightly bigger punch. I served it with multi-colored bell peppers, but it would be great with carrots and other vegetables as well.
Roasted Garlic & Cauliflower Hummus RecipePrint
- Soak the cashews in water for 6-8 hours.
- Preheat oven to 375°. Break the cauliflower into florets and place on a baking sheet. Place the garlic (unpeeled) on the baking sheet as well. Drizzle the ghee, covering the cauliflower and garlic. Bake for 25 minutes, stirring halfway through.
- Peel roasted garlic and place in food processor (I use this one). Add the cauliflower and remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth. If hummus is too thick, add a little more water. Season with salt to taste.
