Roasted Red Pepper Paleo Hummus

I must admit that, when giving up legumes, hummus was not high on my list of things I would miss.

Don’t get me wrong…I love a good hummus. It’s just not one of those things that was on our regular shopping list.  In fact, previously, I might purchase hummus once a year and I might make it once or twice a year on top of that.

So you can imagine that creating a paleo-friendly hummus was not high on my priority list…and it wasn’t. That is until Shirley shared her Brazilian Un-Cheese Rolls/Biscuits where red pepper hummus is a key ingredient.

Couple this with the opportunity to adopt Shirley in last month’s Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger event, perfecting a red pepper hummus suddenly hit the top of my to-do list.

To my surprise there are a number of paleo hummus recipes available online, but I still couldn’t find one that was just-right for what I needed.

I did find though, that I prefer cauliflower based hummus recipes over nut and squash based recipes.

Isn’t cauliflower amazing? From potatoes to hummus, this vegetable makes a delicious replacement for so many less nutrient-dense foods.  I love it!

My contribution to this week’s FoodNetwork Summer Fest, this recipe is so delicious that once I finalized it, I had to kick my kids out of the kitchen and force them to stop scooping vegetables through this to ensure I had enough to make Shirley’s Biscuits with!

Use this as a dip, a spread or as part of Shirley’s delicious recipe, I hope you enjoy this as much as we do.

xoxo

 

Roasted Red Pepper Paleo Hummus

Ingredients

  • 1 large Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 head Cauliflower, cut into flourets
  • 2 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 2 tsp Smoked/Regular Paprika (I prefer smoked)
  • ½ tsp Smoked/Regular Cayenne (I prefer smoked)
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • ½ c Tahini
  • ¼ c Lemon Juice

Instructions

  1. Broil red pepper in the oven or over open flame until skin is charred and flesh is beginning to become tender, turning often to ensure even roasting. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. Lower/preheat oven to 500f.
  3. In large bowl, mix together cauliflower, olive oil, cumin, paprika, cayenne and salt.
  4. Spread seasoned cauliflower evenly over parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Once roasting is complete, peel skin from pepper and place this, the roasted cauliflower, garlic, tahini and lemon juice in blender or food processor. Blend/process on medium/medium-high speed and tamper as needed until ideal texture is achieved.
  6. Remove from blender and serve as-is, with vegetables or in your favorite hummus based recipe.
  7. Makes approximately 2 cups

  1. What a great idea, using cauliflower in place of beans for hummus. My kids love roasted cauliflower, so I’m sure they’d enjoy this.

    • :) It is such a blessing when our little ones enjoy the vegetables we feed them. Please let me know if you give this a try, I’d love to hear your review. xoxo

  2. I am so tickled that it was your adoption of me and my Brazilian Un-Cheese Rolls/Biscuits recipe that inspired you to create this paleo roasted red pepper hummus! Can’t wait to try this recipe, Sunny. :-)

  3. Cauliflower in place of beans…great idea! Will definitely be trying this!

  4. Can’t WAIT to make this. I love hummus, but I can’t eat legumes either. Now it’s just gotta cool down enough to use my oven :)

  5. First things first..the cauliflower roasted all by itself will be a repeat in this house…super yum! I am imagining a paleo jambalaya….with it as a base. Second, I loved this…here are the changes I made: I roasted the garlic cloves with the cauliflower to,mellow it. I also added tomatoe paste for extra zing, which I loved too. Might try some herbs next time…yum Sunny!
