An awesome alternative to regular chick pea hummus. Roasted cauliflower replaces the white beans as the base. Add more olive oil and blend it more to make it extra creamy. You'll have to use a rubber spatula to keep stirring the cauliflower down into the blender blades or food processor blades to get the cauliflower to puree. It takes some patience, but what you'll end up with is a wonderful creamy cauliflower dip!
