Our staff Certified Nutritionist Justice De La Torre is back with an AMAZING recipe for Cauliflower Hummus in this weeks blog. Justice is a strong proponent of the Paleo way of eating. The Paleo diet, if you don’t know, is simply a diet that consists of eating as humans did in the Paleolithic era. This means eliminating legumes of all sorts, including peanuts, which funnily enough are considered legumes, cereal grains, refined sugar, potatoes, processed foods, salt and dairy. A lot of people mistake the paleo diet with the Low Carb diet, but the low carb diet never excluded legumes and dairy. So there you go. This recipe for Cauliflower hummus is so yummy. My daughter had a taste of this Cauliflower hummus, and kept coming back for more, and more, and more!
Here’s what you need:
1 small head of Cauliflower
1/2 cup of Tahini paste
2 cloves of Garlic
1 Tablespoon of Lemon juice
2 teaspoons of cumin
Sea Salt to taste
2 tablespoons of Olive oil
Dash of red pepper flakes
Steam your Cauliflower until you can pierce it with a fork easily.
In a separate pan, add oil, toss in your cloves of garlic and heat until you can smell the garlic, 10-30 seconds.
Add the heated garlic and the tahini to a blender and blend for 1 minute.
Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.
Let the mixture cool to room temperature, and enjoy with grilled meat, or veggie sticks, or both!
