Creamy Cauliflower Hummus Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious dip to serve your guests at the next party? Or maybe something that pairs perfectly with crunchy fresh vegetables, warm tortillas, or crackers? Look no further because I've got just the thing for you - my creamy cauliflower hummus recipe!

I can't tell you how many times I've made this recipe for my friends and family and every single time, the bowl is wiped clean in record time. The garlic, lemon juice, and tahini make this hummus flavourful and creamy, while the cauliflower gives it a unique texture that everyone will love. My personal recommendation - serve with some Tabouli on top for an even more delicious snack experience!

This cauliflower hummus recipe is so versatile - you can use it as a dip, a spread, or even as a healthy creamy sauce for some veggie-packed dinner recipes. Plus, it's vegan and low in carbs so you don't have to worry about indulging every once in a while. So go ahead, give it a try - you won't be sorry!

What is Cauliflower Hummus?

First things first, you're probably wondering what cauliflower hummus is all about. Well, this delicious dip is made with blended baked cauliflower, tahini (sesame paste), garlic, lemon juice and a few other ingredients. While traditional hummus is made with chickpeas, this version is just as delicious - with the added bonus of being packed with nutritious veggies.

If you're someone who's a fan of the usual hummus, I know it's hard to imagine how cauliflower could possibly make for a tasty dip. But trust me, this one's so much better for you! While a serving of regular hummus contains about 166 calories and 14 grams of carbs, a serving of this vegan cauliflower hummus only has 106 calories and 2.7 grams of carbs!

Know what that means? You dig in all you want without a care in the world!

Easy Homemade Dip Ideas

Dips are one of the best appetizers you can make - and I will vouch for this with my life! Whether it's a house party or a gathering of friends and family, having a couple of delicious dip options can get conversations going and bring life to the event.

While my cauliflower hummus recipe is definitely worth checking out, here are some more low carb dip ideas you can try:

  1. Warm Roasted Garlic & Brussels Sprout Dip: Mmmm, just the thought of it makes me drool! This dip is made with roasted garlic, cream cheese, grated parmesan cheese, and bacon. You may not be a fan of Brussel sprouts, but trust me, even the pickiest eaters will dive in for this one.

  2. Garlic Aioli: What goes well with fries, sandwiches, fish, and veggies? Garlic aioli! My version is made with natural ingredients like olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, whole egg, and Dijon mustard. Sometimes I don't even dip things in it, I just pour it over and enjoy the flavour explosion!

  3. Tzatziki: This one's a classic. It's a smooth dip made with cucumber, garlic, Greek yogurt and a few herbs. Drizzle some olive oil on it for extra flavour, and dunk in your fav veggies for a delicious snack time!

  4. Avocado Salsa: No, I'm not talking about guacamole (although that's delicious too!). This one's a chunky, mild salsa that pairs perfectly with nachos or tacos. It's made with avocado, tomatoes, cilantro, jalapenos, and onions. You can even add corn, black beans, and even mango for extra flavour. This one's a real party-pleaser!

So, what are you waiting for? Pick one or all of these easy homemade dip ideas and bring a spark to your next party! If none of these are your fancy, you can always fall back on my easy hummus recipe too!

PS: Don't forget to stock up on crackers, chips, and veggies because everyone's going to want to dig into these! Enjoy!

Low-Carb Middle Eastern Appetizers

Although you can eat my gluten-free hummus with pretty much anything, it pairs best with some of your favourite Middle Eastern appetizers. Here are some great options for a healthy and delicious snack time!

  • Kibbeh: Kibbeh is a popular Middle Eastern dish made with bulgur, onions, spices, and ground beef or lamb. Swap the bulgar wheat with some quinoa for a low-carb version and top it with some of my healthy hummus recipe - yum!

  • Falafel: Another iconic Middle Eastern snack, falafel is made with chickpeas and spices. If you're looking for a tasty low-carb version, try swapping the chickpeas with cauliflower and almond flour, and then using that to make your falafel balls. Best part about this is that you can use all the leftover ingredients to make my cauliflower hummus recipe too!

  • Manakish: This is my personal favourite combo. Manakish is a type of flatbread that's topped with a variety of ingredients, such as herbs, cheese, and ground meat. It pairs amazingly well with my cauliflower hummus, and I can assure you that you'll be making these pretty much all the time once you try it!

Go ahead, call your friends up and let them know you're having a Middle Eastern feast! With my easy hummus recipe, these low-carb appetizers, and lots of fun conversations, you're all set to have a great time!

Tips & Tricks

Cauliflower hummus is pretty easy to make, and it goes with pretty much everything. But here are a couple of tips to help you get the perfect dip, every single time:

  • Bake the cauliflower florets in the oven before blending them. This will give your hummus a nice roasted flavour, and it will also make the blending process easier.

  • If the hummus is too thick, you can always add a little bit of water or olive oil to make it easier to dip. In fact, I'd recommend the olive oil if you're not too calorie-conscious, as it gives it a silky-smooth texture.

  • Feel free to add any other spices or herbs you may like. I personally love adding some chilli flakes, garlic powder and cracked pepper to mine.

  • Don't forget to store your hummus in an airtight glass container. In the fridge, this can stay fresh for up to 3 days.

I hope you definitely give my cauliflower hummus recipe a try, and I can't wait to hear all your feedback! Enjoy and happy snacking!
