It’s that time of year again where we want to eat healthier and get more fruits and veggies into our diets. But we’re also gearing up for the playoffs and the Super Bowl in just a few weeks! Which means we had to put on our thinking caps and come up with a healthy game day recipe to enjoy on Sunday afternoons. The result: roasted cauliflower hummus.
Inspired by our air fryer buffalo cauliflower bites, we swapped the main ingredient in another one of our favorite snacks – hummus – for cauliflower. While chickpeas aren’t the worst thing in the world, they are high in carbs, and it’s too easy to overindulge in hummus (it just tastes too good)!
With this keto-friendly, low carb cauliflower hummus, you’re basically dipping veggies into more veggies, so you can eat as much of it as you want without compromising your New Year’s healthy diet goals.
Our roasted cauliflower hummus is super thick and creamy, with a hybrid flavor giving notes of classic hummus and cauliflower at the same time. Served with veggies, pita chips, or crackers, this tasty snack is perfect for game day parties!
Roasted Cauliflower Hummus Ingredients
Here’s what you’ll need to make this healthy cauliflower hummus dip:
- Cauliflower florets
- Lemon juice
- Olive oil
- Chives (optional garnish)
Essentially, this recipe follows our traditional hummus recipe but replaces the chickpeas with roasted cauliflower. This simple swap yields a totally unique hummus that’s still super creamy and dippable! Roasted cauliflower hummus is a great option if you are on a keto diet or are allergic to chickpeas.
How To Make Roasted Cauliflower Hummus
To make roasted cauliflower hummus, you’ll first need to prepare the roasted cauliflower ahead of time. This can be done up to 4 hours in advance. It will take 30 minutes to roast, and you’ll want to let it cool for at least 1 hour before making the hummus, so plan ahead if you want to make this dip for a party!
Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of how to make our roasted cauliflower hummus recipe:
- First, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
- Next, spread the cauliflower florets out on a baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Then, roast the cauliflower in the oven for 30 minutes. Let cool for at least 1 hour.
- Transfer the cauliflower to a food processor. Add water, lemon juice, tahini, olive oil, garlic, cumin, and salt. Pulse a few times, then process on medium speed until the consistency is smooth.
- Finally, transfer the cauliflower hummus to a serving bowl and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.
You can adjust the amount of cumin and salt to taste once you’ve put everything through the food processor. We also recommend slicing up some chives for garnish if you’re planning on serving this hummus at a party since it adds a nice pop of color.
