Beet Cauliflower Hummus

I just realized as I wrote that title that these two veggies might not make a lot of Top Ten Favorite Vegetable lists...  but I just see that as all the more reason to create a delicious and gorgeous spread out of the two, that will win over even the pickiest veggie eaters! 

This a grain-free, gluten-free, Paleo, Autoimmune Protocol & Sugar Detox approved recipe! 

Beet Cauliflower Hummus

Beet Cauliflower Hummus 

Ingredients:

3 small beets, pre-roasted (or purchased already cooked)

1 small head of cauliflower, or one bag of frozen cauliflower

2-3 cloves garlic, minced 

3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more to top off

2 tablespoons lemon juice 

about 2 teaspoons sea salt - to taste

a few twists of fresh black pepper

 

Instructions:

  • Cook the cauliflower: (raw or frozen) Make sure florets are cut into smaller chunks, then add to a saucepan of boiling water and cook 5-8 minutes or until the cauliflower is soft. Drain and rinse with cool water to reduce the heat. 
  • In your food processor or blender: add cauliflower, garlic, cooked beets, olive oil, lemon juice, pepper and 1 teaspoon of salt. 
  • Process until smooth, or until the sides need scraping; also take a taste-test and see if you need to add more salt here.
  • Once consistency is smooth, spoon out into a dish, top with a little more olive oil, and serve with your favorite dipping veggies or plantain chips!

Enjoy!
