Hello, Plant Powered Pro-Age Ladies! Today, I'm excited to share a recipe that's not only a treat for your taste buds but also a boon for your wellness journey. It's a delicious twist on traditional hummus – Cauliflower Hummus!

Why Cauliflower Hummus?

Cauliflower hummus blends the creamy texture and rich flavors of classic hummus with the added nutritional benefits of cauliflower. This recipe is perfect for anyone looking to incorporate more plant-based, whole foods into their diet, especially for women over 50 focusing on hormone balance, fat loss, and overall health.

The Power-Packed Ingredients

Cauliflower and chick peas

  1. Cauliflower: A versatile vegetable packed with vitamins C and K, cauliflower is a low-calorie food that promotes weight loss and provides essential antioxidants.

  2. Chickpeas: These are great for muscle health and keeping you full longer, thanks to their high protein and fiber content.

  3. Olive Oil: A source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, olive oil is excellent for maintaining healthy skin and overall wellness.

  4. Lemon Juice: Rich in vitamin C, it not only boosts your immune system but also adds a fresh, zesty flavor.

  5. Garlic & Cumin: Both known for their anti-inflammatory properties, these spices add depth and warmth to the hummus.

  6. Tahini: This sesame seed paste is not just for flavor; it's a calcium-rich ingredient great for bone health.

Simple Steps to Deliciousness

  1. Prepare the Base: Start by steaming 1 cup of cauliflower until tender and combine it with 1 cup of chickpeas in a food processor.

  2. Blend in Flavor: Add 2 tbsp olive oil, the juice of 1 lemon, 2 tbsp tahini, 1/2 tsp garlic, and 1/2 tsp cumin. Blend until smooth.

  3. Season to Taste: Add salt and pepper to your liking, blend again, and voila – your Cauliflower Hummus is ready!
