Cauliflower Hummus Recipe Whole30 Paleo Keto

What makes this Cauliflower Hummus Recipe Whole30 + Paleo?

Traditional hummus uses chickpeas (garbanzo beans) as the base. Since chickpeas are a legume and are excluded from the Whole30 and Paleo lifestyles, we’re using cauliflower instead! I love this swap because it’s an extra vegetable, but it tastes exactly the same! Even my kiddos love this recipe and can’t tell the difference. We still use the traditional lemon juice, tahini (ground sesame paste), olive oil, and ground cumin.

How should I serve this hummus?

If you’re not doing a Whole30 and you want a Paleo option, I recommend serving them with these Siete Tortilla Chips. They are SO GOOD. They’re made with cassava flour and avocado oil, a great fat choice. They have chia seeds, too! They’re grain free and such a good match for this cauliflower hummus recipe.
