Do you miss the rich creaminess of a thick, garlicky hummus?! If like me you are following a low-carb lifestyle, then traditional hummus may have been something you’ve been avoiding. Until now with Keto Hummus! This delicious alternative to a traditional hummus is low in carbs but high in flavour and nutrients! It is SO delicious and can be made with so many variations.
Keto Cauliflower Hummus
You will need
1 large head cauliflower
3 tbsp cold-pressed avocado oil or virgin olive oil
2 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp water, or more for desired consistency
juice from 1 lemon 1 garlic clove
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cumin
pinch of ground coriander
To garnish: avocado oil, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds or pumpkin seeds and a pinch of smoked paprika.
Let’s do this
Pre heat your oven to 170 degrees. Remove the florets from the head of cauliflower and place on a baking tray. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil (or avocado oil) and toss to combine. Place the baking tray in the oven and roast for 15-20 minutes. Blitz the roasted cauliflower in a food processor. Add the tahini, remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, water, lemon juice, garlic clove, salt, cumin and coriander. Add pepper to taste. Blend on high until super smooth and creamy. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with seeds of choice and optional smoked paprika for extra flavour. If your cauliflower hummus is a bit thick, just add more water (a teaspoon at a time) until it's your desired level of creaminess.
Serve with keto almond crackers, chopped cucumber stick and celery sticks for the ultimate low carb combo!
