Crazy Good Roasted Cauliflower Hummus Recipe With Crispy Baked Chickpeas

This cauliflower hummus recipe with crispy chickpeas was inspired by a dish I ordered at an airport restaurant. I thought about missing my flight so I could order more. Yep, it was that good.

Serve this creamy cauliflower hummus recipe with pita bread. It's a healthy appetizer or snack any time. (If you forget things like me, be sure to set a timer for 20 minutes to take the chickpeas out of the oven and then set it for 10 minutes more for the cauliflower.) Add more lemon juice, salt, pepper and seasonings to suit your tastes.

Cuisine: Middle Eastern
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 12


Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the cauliflower into a baking dish. Add 1/4 cup of olive oil and the lemon rind. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. 
  2. On a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, toss together 1 can of the chickpeas with the smoked paprika, ground cumin, coriander and 3 tablespoons olive oil. Put both pans into the oven and bake at 425-degree F until cauliflower is golden and tender, about 30 minutes, and chickpeas are golden and crispy, about 20 minutes. Remove and cool. 
  3. Put almost all the cauliflower into the blender (save some for garnish) along with the remaining 1 can of chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini and garlic. Pulse until smooth. Add the 1/4 cup of olive oil and blend until combined. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. 
  4. Put the hummus into a serving bowl. Top with the saved roasted cauliflower and chickpeas. Sprinkle with crumbled feta and garnish with kalamata olives. Serve with pita bread.

I absolutely love this idea. I also have had feta cheese hummus, which I have been wanting to re-create (in case you beat me to it). It's SO good!
Cauliflower is a great secret ingredient in so many recipes to boost nutrition.
This looks really good! 😍
