IS HUMMUS KETO FRIENDLY?

No, to be honest hummus is not keto-friendly as it has a lot of carbs. Usually hummus is made with chickpeas and has 6 net carbs in ¼ cup.

To make the hummus creamy, make sure that your cauliflower is super soft and mushy. Now add approx. 2 tablespoons of water into the hummus (while blending) to make it extra creamy and smooth.

USEFUL TIPS

  • ROASTED CAULIFLOWER HUMMUS – Its surely time consuming procedure but it adds more flavor as compared to any other method.
  • Chop your head of fresh cauliflower into florets.  Place on a sheet pan and roast in an oven for 20 minutes (or until the cauliflower gets browned on the edges) at 425F. Your cauliflower should be really tender and mushy.
  • ADDING GARLIC TO ROASTED CAULIFLOWER HUMMUS – for a delicious roasted garlic flavor, peel half of a head of garlic and remove the garlic cloves. Enfold the cloves in foil and add to the tray with the cauliflower.
  • STEAMED CAULIFLOWER HUMMUS (SIMPLEST METHOD) – It’s a time-saving and quick procedure. I buy a bag of frozen cauliflower florets and steam them in the bag according to the package directions.  Let the cauliflower cool before blending.
  • FREEZING KETO HUMMUS – If you want to make a double or triple batch of this hummus, simply place a sheet of parchment paper on a large sheet tray and dollop 1/4 cup size portions. Leave enough room so they do not touch.  Place in the freezer for 2-4 hours.  Remove from the freezer and cut the parchment paper around the portions.  Now you can stack them up in a freezer safe container and layer more parchment paper squares between each one.  Freeze for up to 2 months.  
  • YOU CAN ALSO USE CAULIFLOWER RICE – Cauliflower rice would work for this recipe but make sure it is cooked super soft and mushy.
