Roasted Cauliflower & Macadamia Nut Hummus
Cristina Curp from@thecastawaykitchen created a dreamy Mediterranean hummus-style dip with our Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil, cauliflower, and macadamia nuts.
1 large head of cauliflower
5 garlic cloves
2 slices of bacon
1/4 small onion
4-5 Tablespoons Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
1/3 cup macadamia nuts
2 tablespoons capers
1/4 cup minced parsley
3 lemons, juiced
Preheat oven to 400°F. Chop cauliflower into 1-inch pieces. Peel garlic cloves. Dice onion. Cut bacon into 1-inch pieces. Slice 1 lemon.
Toss everything on a sheet pan with 2 tablespoons of Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil, salt, and pepper.
Spread vegetable and bacon mixture on a sheet pan, and add garlic cloves to the top of a piece of bacon or lemon slice.
Place in the oven and roast for 30-40 minutes.
Next, prepare the food processor. Add the remaining two lemons, minced parsley and 1 tablespoon of capers to blend mixture.
With 10 minutes left on the timer of your roasted vegetable and bacon mixture, add the macadamia nuts to the sheet pan in the oven. Roast for the remaining 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and set aside to cool. Then, add vegetables, bacon, and nuts to the food processor.
Add 2 tablespoons of avocado oil. Keep the mixture moving until it is smooth or almost smooth. Cristina likes her vegetable hummus a little bit on the chunky side, so blend it to your desired texture.
Serve hummus in a large plate or bowl. Make well in the center, fill with one tablespoon of capers, bacon bits, macadamia nuts, herbs and a drizzle of avocado oil. Enjoy!
