I like getting funky with food and hummus is the perfect dip to try new flavors with. I've made carrot hummus before, but recently saw cauliflower hummus in the store and thought oh yeah, let's do this! Hummus is the best thing ever since you don't truly need to follow any recipe to a T, add in any flavor you are digging that day, add nutrition powerhouses that you will barely even know are there.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I don't love to follow recipes, nor do I love to measure things. So here is my disclaimer that you should take these with a grain of salt and have fun with your hummus...live on the edge!
What you'll need:
One head cauliflower
1/4 of an onion
1 TBSP curry powder
1/4 Tsp salt/pepper (to your liking)
1/3-1/2 cup chickpeas
1/3 cup tahini
1/4-1/2 cup water
Step 1: Roast! Cut a whole head of cauliflower and about 1/4 of an onion (sliced) into small-medium pieces. Place in a bowl, drizzle with a bit of oil (or omit for oil-free), curry spice (or your favorite spices), pepper, and salt. Roast until well done - maybe 20-30 minutes at 400 degrees.
Step 2: Place roasted cauliflower/onion into a food processor and blend until it's between cauliflower rice and cream like.
Step 3: Add the chickpeas, tahini, spices, and water. Blend, scrape, blend, scrape until you have your hummus! You may need to add a tiny bit of water if it's too thick.
Step 4: Serve or store for about a week in an airtight container.
A fun and cute snack filled with wholesome nutrition (think omegas, protein, fiber, and more!), great for a post-workout snack or just craving some hummus!
What you'll need:
A few collard greens (use a knife to cut the stem out for prime fold-ability)
Step 1: Blanch your collard greens. Boil a tiny layer of water in a pan, place a collard green in for 30 seconds then repeat for all the others. They say you should then place in an ice bath and wait 20-30 minutes, but I don't have the patience for that and I've never had a problem...
Step 2: Add a bunch of hummus, spread it around. Drizzle about a tbsp or 2 over the hummus, along with however much sriracha your heart desires.
Step 3: Fold like a baby burrito. Roll the bottom a bit, then push the sides in, then continue until you have your very own collard wrap!
And there you have it. Let me know if you try it out!
