I swear...whenever I go to Trader Joe's I pick up a bag of cauliflower rice. Eventually, I end up with a freezer full of cauliflower rice and no idea what to do with all of it besides throw it in a smoothie.
Truth be told- I'm not a fan of using cauliflower rice as a 'rice' substitute. I prefer a big ole scoop of jasmine rice to a cauliflower anyday. To give cauliflower rice some credit- it is mild and malleable enough to blend in with anything and you can't taste it. So, my craving for creamy, tasty hummus and a bag of cauliflower rice was enough to spark the creative juices in my head. "Dylan has 64 oz of tahini, I have lemons to use...." I knew a hummus would be in the works. Behold...the hummus without chickpeas, but with tons of fresh flavors.
1 cup frozen cauliflower
2 tbsp tahini
juice 1/4 lemon
1 small clove garlic
2-3 tbsp water
Heat up cauliflower rice until warm, don't drain any excess liquid.
Add all of the ingredients to a blender/food processor.
If mixture is too solid, add in water 1 tbsp at a time until it reaches a creamy consistency.
Be sure to scrape down the sides of your blender/food processor to get all the ingredients incorporated.
Serve with naan, pita, or veggies! Keep refrigerated.
I'm a creature of habit and I've made this twice already. Each time I have to remind myself that there's no chickpeas, but it's still so creamy and tangy. Enjoy!
