Roasted Cauliflower Hummus

Chickpeas aren’t paleo, which means hummus isn’t either. One of my favorite snacks is to have some hummus and carrots, its so easy to grab in the morning and fills me right up.  So when I heard that hummus would have to be given up, I put my foot down and was determined to find a substitute for it. Luckily I did!

I make this hummus with cauliflower, so when I pair it with carrots I’m literally dipping vegetables in more vegetables – which equals pure awesomeness. It’s so easy to make, and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients.
