Submitted by: KAIROSGRAMMY

Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    1/2 head of cauliflower
    1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
    3 tbsp. Smart Balance creamy peanut butter
    Juice from 1/2 lemon (or whole lemon if desired)
    Cumin, Onion flakes, salt & pepper to taste

Tips

Hummus is usually made with tahini which is a fermented soy product however, where I live, it is a nutritional wasteland so peanut butter works well. You can trade out tahini for peanut butter, same proportions if desired. I personally worry about soy being safe to eat anyway and it was yummy with the peanut butter.


Directions

MIcrowave cauliflower until soft, about 7 minutes.
While cauliflower is microwaving, drain chickpeas into a bowl and reserve juice. Rinse the chickpeas
Put soft cauliflower, chickpeas, peanut butter, lemon juice and seasonings into a food processor or blender and blend. If consistnecy isn't quite what you want, add some of the reserved juice until it is the consistency you like.
