I am always looking for new spreads or sauces to add into my bowls, spread on toasts or flatbreads that are hearty enough to keep me full and of course taste good. My fallback is always a homemade protein pesto and anything that involves avocado, but I have become pretty bored with the two, despite adding a bit of pesto into this recipe! (It just went together!) Hummus is usually another go-to but chickpeas usually bother my stomach, so I needed to sub chickpeas and on my blog, I do have a recipe for using almond flour as a replacement but I wanted to try using a vegetable this time; so here enters: cauliflower.
I promise you it tastes delicious and actually, the cauliflower isn’t overpowering at all. It really does taste exactly like hummus! Same consistency and texture! It goes perfectly with this flatbread or with crackers, veggies for any dip, really just about anything! I kept it simple by just adding in lemon, a little curry, and nutritional yeast, but you can add in any spices or flavorings you love. After you roast the cauliflower it is pretty simple since all you need to do is add everything at once to your food processor and blend until smooth!
After the cauliflower hummus was prepared I spread it on top of my favorite flatbread with vegetables of choice plus a little pesto and then baked it in the oven! That’s it! It is perfect for anyone that has a hard time digesting chickpeas and is looking to add in some more vegetables into their everyday routine!
