Tips for the best roasted cauliflower hummus:
I highly recommend roasting the cauliflower in this recipe rather than steaming it. Cauliflower on its own is quite bland and neutral in flavor. While that’s great for making it a versatile vegetable, it can also make it boring to the palate.
To jazz up the flavor in this hummus recipe, roast the cauliflower for 20 minutes. It will make it soft and easy to blend while also imparting a bit more flavor.
- 1 large head cauliflower, approx 5 cups florets
- 3 tbsp olive oil, divided
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 2 tbsp water or more for desired consistency
- juice from 1 lemon
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp ground cumin
- pinch of ground coriander
- pepper to taste
- garnish with olive oil, sunflower seeds, and chopped parsley
- Preheat oven to 400ºF.
- Remove the florets from the head of cauliflower and place on a baking tray. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil (or avocado oil) and toss to combine. Place the baking tray in the oven and roast for 20 minutes.
- Transfer the cauliflower to your Vitamix or a food processor. Add the tahini, remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, water, lemon juice, garlic clove, salt, cumin and coriander. Add pepper to taste. Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
- Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with sunflower seeds and chopped parsley.
Home Chef Tip: Be sure to follow the step for roasting the cauliflower. If you steam it, you will still get the right consistency, however the taste will be very bland.
