Roasted Cauliflower Hummus


Ingredients:
2 1/2 Cups of cauliflower
2 1/2 Tablespoons of avocado oil
4 Cloves of garlic, roasted
1/2 Teaspoon of Himalayan salt
1/8 Teaspoon of black pepper
1/2 Teaspoon smoked paprika
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup of tahini
1/2 Cup of ice water
Kalamata olives, optional
1/2 Tomato, chopped, optional
Vegan feta cheese, chopped, optional

Directions:
-Preheat the oven to 450F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then remove florets from the cauliflower. Chop cauliflower into smaller pieces and add to a bowl. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of avocado oil and rub over the cauliflower. Add to a baking tray with parchment paper and roast for about 15 to 20 minutes on 450F in the oven. You can also roast the garlic at the same time.
-Remove the cauliflower from the oven and cool for about 5 minutes. Then add to the blender the roasted garlic, smoked paprika, lemon juice, cauliflower, Himalayan salt and pepper. Blend everything together then slowly stream in the tahini while the blender or food processor is still running. Blend for about 2 minutes and scrape down the sides. Then add ice cold water while the food processor is still running, the water should begin to incorporate into the cauliflower hummus mixture. Blend for 5 minutes until smooth. Taste for seasoning or add tahini to taste. Serve hummus with chopped Kalamata olives, chopped tomatoes and vegan feta cheese on top and enjoy with your favorite flat bread.
