Cauliflower Hummus

This Cauliflower Hummus recipe is so simple to put together and is a great vegan and legume-free alternative to traditional hummus. It’s Whole30, Keto and Paleo friendly and truly you wouldn’t notice it wasn’t traditional hummus.

Easy cauliflower hummusCauliflower Hummus

Cauliflower really is a magical vegetable that can be turned into anything! Previously we’ve made noodle-free tuna casserole, hash browns, cauliflower parmesan, and pizza bites with cauliflower and now we’ve turned a classic dip into a legume-free version! This Cauliflower Hummus is so close in flavor to the real thing that most people eating it wouldn’t know it wasn’t traditional hummus. This is a great dip for people who can’t tolerate beans, those eating a paleo diet or a low carb diet. But also it’s just a really great dip: no special diet or lifestyle needed to love this one.

And the best part about it all is that it’s so easy to make. Simply roast some cauliflower and garlic (of course!) and whirl it up in a food processor or blender with some traditional flavorings and it’s done!

What do you serve cauliflower hummus with?

This is a great dip to serve alongside a spread of crackers, vegetables or pita or a gluten-free equivalent. This would also be lovely served along a dinner like grilled chicken and vegetables.

How long can you store cauliflower hummus?

It can be kept in a refrigerator for about 3 days. It can easily be made ahead of time if serving at an event!

Whenever we ask readers what is it that they are looking for it’s always easy and quick meals! Well this Everything Bagel Hummus Breakfast Toast checks all the boxes: it’s quick, it’s likely stuff you already have on hand and it’s so delicious! If you’ve never heard of hummus at breakfast time, let us introduce you to it because it’s the new thing!

We love our hummus breakfast toast topped with a soft boiled egg and a sprinkle of ‘Everything Bagel’ spice blend, along with a healthy drizzle of olive oil to add some heathy fats along with the protein filled hummus to fuel you for the morning. You also can top this any other type of egg you’d like, like hard boiled or fried, or simply leave the egg off! The hummus alone is already filling enough, but we are fans of eggs in the morning so we added one to ours!

Can you eat hummus for breakfast?

Absolutely! We love savory items for breakfast and hummus is no exception! It’s so easy to pick up a prepared hummus at the store that has real food ingredients that you can always have on hand and use with a variety of toppings. And this is totally customizable to top with whatever you have on hand or feel like eating, not just with what we are suggesting here.

What bread is good with Hummus?

For our breakfast toast we choose to go with a gluten-free hearty loaf (we love Trader Joe’s Gluten-Free Bread and Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-Free Bread) that compliments the strong flavors of the ‘Everything Bagel’ spice and the hummus, but you can really use any toast (even sweet potato toast!) for this recipe.

While you can now grab Everything Bagel spices in a store, we’ve been all about this long before that was a thing. So, here is how to make an ‘Everything Spice’ blend at home!

In a small bowl mix together:

Store in the pantry for 6-12 months, depending on how fresh your spices were to begin with.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Baked Hummus Dip

Prep Time 00:05 Cook Time 00:20 Serves 6

Ingredients

Serve with

  • sliced cucumbers
  • carrot sticks
  • celery sticks
  • cherry tomatoes 
  • Van's Gluten-Free Crackers (We like: Fire-Roasted Veggie, Multigrain, The Perfect 10, Lots of Everything)

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350ºF and place an 8" oval or similar-sized oven-safe dish on a rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add caramelized onion, green onion, shredded chicken, bacon, garlic, salt, pepper and spices. Cook for 1-2 minutes until crisp and fragrant. Let cool for 5 minutes. Add hummus to combine.
  3. Place hummus mixture into oven safe container and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. 
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until fully heated through and the cheese is melted.
  5. Serve with Van's gluten-free crackers and vegetable crudité.

Recipe Notes

  1. We left the caramelized onion as an option as it does add a significant amount of time to the recipe. To caramelize an onion: In a skillet heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter and add in diced onion. Let cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, until they cook down and brown, about 30-40 minutes.
