Roasted Cauliflower Hummus a Lean and Green Recipe

I love hummus.  It’s one of my top 5 favorite snack foods of all time.  However, traditional hummus is high in carbs and is not a true “lean and green recipe” so I came up with an alternative!

Roasted cauliflower makes a PERFECT alternative to chick peas when it comes to making hummus.  The rich, nutty and buttery flavor lends itself to compliment the lemon and garlic leaving you with a guilt-free snack food you’ll want to devour.

4 C     cauliflower

4 tsp     tahini paste (ground sesame seeds)

4 tsp     Stacey Hawkins Roasted Garlic Oil

1 tsp     Stacey Hawkins Simply Brilliant Seasoning

1 tsp     Stacey Hawkins Dash of Desperation Seasoning

1 tsp     lemon juice

1-2 T    water (if needed)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (or spray lightly with nonstick spray).  While oven is heating, cut the cauliflower into small florets.
  2. Place florets on the cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes until slightly browned, stirring 1/2 way through the cooking time.
  3. Combine cauliflower and all remaining ingredients (except water) in food processor.  Pulse until smooth.  Add water, 1 T at a time if necessary for a thinner consistency (if desired.)
  4. Serve with fresh veggies!
  5. May be kept in an airtight container for up to 1 week refrigerated.
