Cauliflower Hummus Recipe

Light and fluffy, this snack tastes even better than traditional hummus. It has all the wonderful flavours of a fabulous Greek snack, but without the difficult-to-digest legumes.

Serves

4 to 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium head cauliflower (about 2 cups [200g] florets)
  • 1/3 cup (80 g) tahini
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp (28 ml) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ¾ tsp sea salt
  • Black pepper, to taste

Method:

1. Place a steamer basket in a medium pot and fill the pot with about 2 inches (5 cm) of water. If you don’t have a basket, use a colander on top of your pot. Bring the water to a boil. Place the cauliflower florets in the steamer basket or colander. Cover and allow the cauliflower to steam for 8 minutes, or until soft.

2. Transfer the cauliflower to a food processor. Add the tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Blend until smooth.

3. Dust with smoked paprika, if desired, before serving.
