I can’t believe that I made hummus.  Well, I can cause I did.  However, I basically avoided hummus since I am not a huge fan of chickpeas.  I do love cauliflower, so I figured why not try a hummus made with cauliflower instead.

I am happy to inform you that his team won the game.  Me, I was just happy to make the spread of food for everyone because you know how hungry you get after cheering for your favorite team sitting on your comfy couch in front of the tube in the warm surroundings of your family room.This savory Cauliflower Hummus dip is a perfect fit for a healthy snack or a terrific addition to any party table.
