Roasted Cauliflower Hummus

Roasted cauliflower hummus is a chickpea free version of hummus, that’s creamy and oh-so delicious!


  • 1 large cauliflower head
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tbsp water
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • pepper and salt
  • garnish with olive oil, sunflower seeds and chopped parsley


  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C
  2. Remove the cauliflower florets and place on a baking tray. Drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil (avocado oil is a delicious alternative) and toss to combine. Place the baking tray in the oven and roast for 20 minutes.
  3. Transfer cauliflower to a food processor. Add the tahini, remaining 2 tbsp olive oil, water, lemon juice, garlic, pepper, salt and cumin. Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
  4. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with sunflower seeds and chopped parsley.

Tip: if your hummus is a bit thick, add more water (1 tsp at a time) until it’s at your desired level of creaminess.
