Juice from 1/2 lemon (or whole lemon if desired)

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.
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.
