Roasted Cauliflower Hummus

Blend up some healthy flavour!

Roasted Cauliflower Hummus

This roasted cauliflower hummus is the perfect blend of sophisticated taste and guilt-free snackage. Substituting roasted cauliflower for the traditional chickpeas not only makes it a low-carb option, but also adds a depth of flavour that might just make this your new favourite hummus. The ginger and sambal chilli add a lasting zing that keeps you coming back for more. Healthy? Check. Delicious? Check. What are you waiting for?
