CAULIFLOWER HUMMUS DIP

Paleo / Gluten Free/ Vegan / Whole30

 

I am fully aware that I have an addiction to baking all the healthier version of my favorite comfort foods - cookies, muffins, truffles, donuts, and the like. Just scan through my recipes and you'll see what I mean. So today I decided to change it up for y'all and show you that this mama knows how to make a MEAN savory dish, too.

Yesterday I picked up a few bags of cauliflower rice from Trader Joe's, but wasn't really feeling like doing a stir fry. So I decided to try a tangy, garlicky dip, and hot damn, it came out good. If you don't have cauliflower rice, just use one large head of cauliflower, and you'll be good to go.

I decided to serve this with the new Beet Chips from Bare Snacks, and hot damn again, what a delicious gluten free, paleo, vegan, and Whole30 compliant snack or anytime meal.

So why waste time, let's get right to it.

 

ingredients

1 16 oz package of Cauliflower Rice
3 cloves garlic
3 tb olive oil
2 tb tahini
3/4 tsp sea salt
Juice of one lemon
Pepper to taste
Optional seasonings: turmeric, garlic powder, paprika, and more olive oil to drizzle on top

 

instructions

Steam cauliflower and the garlic cloves. Don't skip this step, as this is what makes the dip nice and creamy.
Next, add cauliflower, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, and sea salt into a high speed blender or a food processor. Blend until nice and creamy. Add pepper to taste, as well as any additional seasonings.
Transfer the dip to a bowl, drizzle more olive oil on top, and pair with your favorite crunchy dip vehicle (tortilla chips, beet chips, you name it!). Enjoy!
