Paleo Red Pepper Hummus


Hi All,

I just wanted to share this great recipe that I cooked up for Paleo Hummus. It’s essentially a compilation and rework of a few recipes that I’ve tried. Hope you like it!


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • ⅓ cup + 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt (optional)
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ cup tahini
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2-3 lemons
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • paprika (for garnish)


Wash the cauliflower, core it and cut it into small florets (about the size of a half dollar).

In a bowl mix the cauliflower, cumin, 2 tbsp olive oil, salt and black pepper. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet and bake at 450 F for 30 minutes (keep an eye on this because it tends to smoke a little, you’re looking for the cauliflower to brown a bit).

After it’s done, let it cool slightly then place it into a food processor with tahini, garlic powder and lemon juice and blend till smoothed, while streaming in ⅓ cup of olive oil.

At the same time cut a red bell pepper into four sections, making sure to clean it out. Place it on a baking sheet and broil at 500 F for 10-15 minutes, until the skin starts to bubble. Add it to the food processor and blend until smooth.

Add additional lemon juice, garlic powder and olive oil to taste. Then garnish with paprika.
