Low Carb Cauliflower Hummus


  • 4 cups cauliflower florets, loosely measured (not packed in tight)
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp tahini paste (ground toasted sesame seeds)

  • 1 tsp minced garlic, in addition to above
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil, in addition to above
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt, in addition to above
  • Paprika, garnish (optional)


  1. Combine the cauliflower, water, 2 Tbsp olive oil, ½ tsp salt, and 1½ tsp minced garlic in a microwave safe dish. Microwave uncovered for about 15 minutes - or until softened and darkened in color.
  2. Put the cauliflower mixture into a Blendtec twister jar. Add the tahini paste, lemon juice, 1 tsp minced garlic, 3 Tbsp olive oil, and ¼ tsp salt. Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary.
  3. To serve, place the hummus in a bowl and drizzle with extra olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika. Use veggies to dip with.
