Oh the humble cauliflower. I’m seriously obsessed with this vegetable. It’s so versatile and can replace many common high carb foods to create recipes that are low in carbs and still feel as indulgent.
Because cauliflower is so low in calories too, you can actually eat quite a large amount as a serve, compared to other dips that are absolutely packed with calories, with a serve equalling about 2 tbsp… and who can stick to that? It’s pretty hard….
I love maximising the serving sizes for you whilst also maximising flavour and nutrition and thinking of your waistline and gut health at the same time.
This cauliflower hummus recipe is SO good! I’m definitely making it a snack in my upcoming 21 Day Plan for release in 2019 (get excited)…..
Garlic, Turmeric and Roasted Cauliflower Hummus
Time: 50 minutes
1 head cauliflower
Coconut or olive oil spray
1 garlic clove or 2 small garlic cloves
1/3 cup tahini
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp turmeric
1 dash salt
1 dash pepper
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
2. Cut or break cauliflower into florets. Line a baking tray with baking paper, arrange cauliflower on the tray and then spray with coconut or olive oil so that it's all coated.
3. Roast for about 40 minutes, tossing half way through. Then, remove from the oven and cool.
4. In a food processor, place the cauliflower, garlic, tahini, turmeric, lemon juice and olive oil and process until smooth. Then, gradually add water, one tablespoon at a time for a thinner consistency, until desired thickness is reached.
