  • 3 cups raw cauliflower florets fresh (not frozen)
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 4 garlic cloves peeled and divided (or roasted garlic)
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil plus extra to drizzle on top
  • 2 tablespoon tahini sesame seed paste, or if you prefer, nut butter
  • 3 tablespoon lemon juice or lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • A dash of ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons chopped jalapenos de-seeded (or canned jalapenos, drained)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro or parsley if you prefer


  • Combine the cauliflower, water, and 2 whole garlic cloves in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave for about 5-8 minutes or until cooked and softened. Make sure to let your cooked cauliflower cool first.
  • Next, put the drained cooked cauliflower and garlic into a food processor or speed blender. Alternatively, you can toss raw cauliflower with a good drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Then, roast it in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F (200 C) for 22-25 minutes or until softened and golden brown if you prefer, making a roasted cauliflower hummus.
  • Add the EVOO, tahini paste, lemon juice, salt, cumin, jalapeño, 1 tablespoon of cilantro or parsley, and the 2 remaining garlic cloves. Blend until creamy and smooth. Taste and adjust salt as needed!
  • Use celery sticks or low-carb veggie crudites for dipping (e.g. bell pepper sticks, cucumber slices, sliced radishes, etc). Garnish the top with a drizzle of EVOO plus the remaining tablespoon of cilantro/parsley. If desired, also top it with a sprinkle of smoked paprika and toasted sesame seeds.
