Cauliflower hummus

This is alternative to the traditional hummus and delicious with vegetable sticks like carrots or cucumber – try it for lunch. I have borrowed the recipe from whole30 and adjusted a bit to my taste.


1 large head of cauliflower, divided in florets
3 tbsp of olive oil divided
4 tbsp of tahini
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp of cold water
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp of sea salt

1/2 tsp of cumin

1/2 tsp of coriander



Step 1

Prepare the cauliflower and toss with 1 tbsp of the olive oil.

Bake at 180 degrees for 20 minutes.

Step 2

Transfer to blender or food processor. Add tahini, spices, lemon juice, water and olive oil. Blend until smooth and taste with additional salt and pepper.


I have tried this- the portion is huge so really consider sharing with friends. the taste is quite intense, so you ahve to really like the cauliflower- or add additional tahini. Serve with chopped parsley as i did and have for a lunch.
