These Roasted Cauliflower Hummus Bowls are LIFE-CHANGING. A bed of garlicky creamy hummus, piled high with spiced roasted cauliflower, and a speckling of fresh lemony tomatoes and herbs.
- 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon each paprika, cumin, and oregano
- a pinch of black pepper
- 2 14-ounce cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
- juice of two lemons (more or less to taste)
- chopped fresh tomato
- minced fresh parsley
- soft boiled egg or pulled rotisserie chicken
- warm pita (😍)
- olive oil, kosher salt, black pepper
- Cauliflower: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place the cauliflower on a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drizzle with oil, and toss with the spices. Roast for 25-30 minutes.
- Hummus: Optional: Peel the skin off all your chickpeas. This takes a while (about 20 minutes) but results in THE SMOOTHEST HUMMUS of your life. After the optional peeling, place chickpeas in blender or food processor with the olive oil, garlic, salt, and lemon juice. Blend until very, very smooth.
- Plate it up: Arrange a thick swoop of hummus on a plate. Top with cauliflower. Add chopped tomatoes, fresh parsley, harissa, a soft boiled egg, whatever suits your fancy. Finish with olive oil, salt, and pepper. YUM. Happy day.
You can eat this hot or cold! You can add tahini to the hummus if you want. I don’t always have it on hand, which is why I regularly make hummus without it. And it’s delicious either way. Other protein ideas: ground beef, grilled chicken, halloumi.
