  • Califlower hummus.... yum

    I have a confession to make…. I love hummus. I miss hummus. I have actually laid in bed and wondered, “How do I make a really great paleo hummus?” Then the other day, I was writing an article on the many attributes of cauliflower and it hit me. Cauliflower hummus! That’s it!!

    After all Mark Sisson always sings the praises of the adaptability of cauliflower. So I bought a beautiful yellow cauliflower and steamed it. I tossed it into a food processor with a touch of tahini, lemon juice, garlic, actually lot of garlic and olive oil. The cauliflower wasn’t steamed enough. It just went round and round in lumps but the flavor was great.

    Try number 2. This time I steamed the cauliflower till really soft, back into the food processor with all the ingredients except the tahini. I tried macadamia nut butter instead to make this a truly paleo dish. It was an incredible success!
    Give it try and tel me what you think...

    This is also great with roasted cauliflower and garlic.

        I too am ka ka ka ka-razy about hummus. If there's one thing that makes me want to "cheat" the primal eating, it's gobbling down hummus or throwing a handful of chi-chi beans on my salad.

        I'll give this recipe a whirl, soon as I figure out where the hell to make or source macadamia nut butter. Thanks for sharing!

          What do you eat it on? Fresh veggies? I used to eat it on pita.

          Looks amazing!

              Beef jerky dipped in hummus is also fantastic, and now...primal friendly!

                  Yum!!

                  What is the issue with tahini?

                  This kind of reminds me of skordalia, where pureed potatoes and garlic are made into a dip

                    Nothing is really wrong with tahini, but like most other nuts and seeds, it is high in omega 6 fats. Nuts should be a moderate part of the diet, so eliminating them from the recipe makes it more acceptable to eat copious amounts of it, hehe.

                        I was just wondering though why macadamia nut butter is preferred over tahini?

                          Macadamia nuts are lower in omega 6 fats.

                              I just made this and yum!! I`ve been missing my hummus too. Someone also suggested a cashew hummus which I have yet to try. I over did it a tad on the garlic this time but I love garlic so no biggie! Thanks for sharing!
