Keto Hummus

Cauliflower is the new potato

As a glorified home cook (not a chef) I can safely say that potato is one of the most versatile foods on the planet. You can mash it, fry it, sautee it, boil it, bake it etc, you get the idea. What has potato got to do with Keto? It’s off the menu. Well I’m here to say Cauliflower is the new Potato.

It’s not a food I ate much off in my life, in fact I think I quite disliked it. Fast forward to 2015 when I started my Keto journey and cauliflower became my saviour. I think there is nothing more versatile than cauliflower. I’ve made a cauliflower pizza, used it to replace mashed potatoes in Shepherd’s pie and even turned it into cauliflower upma.

Safe to say, it’s the new potato. But what’s that got to do with hummus? Well cauliflower is the perfect replacement for chick peas to make an incredible keto hummus, or cauliflower hummus. Anyway enough jibber jabber. Enjoy the video.

Cauliflower Hummus

While I made this in the food processor in the video, I did make a test batch in my Nutri-bullet the day before. The way the Nutri-bullet pureed the cauliflower was a much better texture overall, not that the food processor was bad, but it just didn’t have the same force. I also must mention that in my test batch I didn’t use an olives while pureeing the mixture, I actually chopped them and added later. I think that might also might be a better idea, I think you get that textural element in the hummus itself. You can go either way with this I think.

I would say this hummus would be best eaten with my Keto naan or even my Keto crackers.

    I made this just as recipe reads. I guess I am not a fan of kalamata olives so after tasting the original recipe, I blended in some roasted red bell pepper and will be feasting on the hummus and naan bread for lunch! I will try this again, minus the olives, as it gives me a great base to season as I please. Thanks!
