Keto Hummus Recipe

by | Nov 16, 2014 | Nutrition

I’m dreaming of laying poolside with a blazing sun right now for two reasons.

Reason #1:  It has been way below zero here in Boulder, CO for 5 days straight now.  I really don’t terribly mind cold weather.  It’s a chance to find your thickest scarves, heaviest blankets and get cozy!  The only times I will complain is when I have to drive somewhere far and the roads are horrible or when I shovel the driveway and 20 minutes later you would never know it.

Reason #2:  Hummus and pita chips used to be a staple in my summer pool-side snack bag.  It’s been several summers since I’ve had traditional hummus and I was starting to think I would never have hummus again.  I finally decided to try a cauliflower-based hummus recipe because I just couldn’t go another day without something to dip my veggies in.  I attempted several different versions but couldn’t see to get it right.

And then, it worked!  The perfect combo of flavors that brought me right back to pool-side snacks with friends…here in the below zero temps!  I took it to a get-together that night and the bowl was gone within minutes.  Definitely a sign that the recipe works.  Try it and let me know what you think!
