Recipe: Roast Cauliflower Hummus

Another week, another dip in the I Spy Plum Pie kitchen! It’s a rare occasion when there’s no dip in my fridge and I’m always looking for new flavours to try, and new vegetables to incorporate.

This recipe comes from the always incredible Kiersten of Oh My Veggies, with just a minor tweak from yours truly. It does take some prep time but it’s definitely worth it! I loved eating it with pita bread or chopped up carrots, or as a spread on a wrap for lunch.

Roast Cauliflower Dip

Delicious! It’s pretty low calorie compared to regular hummus, but it’s equally as creamy, so you can get away with eating a little bit more of it (seriously, who ever sticks to a ‘serving size’ of hummus anyway?!)

      Thanks Cheri! I think poor cauliflower is often overlooked, but it’s really quite versatile!
