This delicious Keto Hummus recipe is made from low carb cauliflower so the carb count is just 2g net carbs per serving. And the good news is that it might even taste better than the original.
Ok, full disclosure.
There are no hummus ingredients in this bowl of Keto Hummus. But trust me, this low carb dip embodies the true essence of hummus. That makes sense, right?
But is hummus Keto friendly?
Not at all! Normal hummus is made from high carb chick peas so the carb count is around 16g per serving. But the Keto hummus I'm going to show you how to make today is made with cauliflower instead of garbanzo beans so the carb count is just 2g per serving.
And in place of garlic, lemon and tahini, I used Thai red curry paste.
The result is a very convincing Keto Hummus that can go head to head with normal high carb hummus and come out victorious. Not too shabby for a bowl of fake hummus.
Not too shabby at all.

Great idea to use cauliflower instead of chickpeas and I can imagine how flavourful this dip is with those thai flavours of coconut milk and red curry paste!
Thanks! It really does have a wonderful flavor from the curry paste.
I sure love my hummus and my chickpeas but I'd definitely be down for trying it made with cauliflower. Very creative! Love the idea of a curry flavor too! 🙂
Sweet. I hope you like it!

I love that you used cauliflower to make hummus. Hubby and I love hummus and your curried cauliflower looks like it's going to make an appearance at our table pretty soon.
Great! Let me know how you like it.
Love this version of hummus. Sounds interesting and delicious!

The curry in your recipes is really intriguing to me because I use it all the time. Love how truly healthy this is, especially paired with crudite as you've shown.

I never would have thought to use cauliflower instead of chick peas, but it was really delicious. I fooled my husband into thinking it was the real thing. LOL
It passed the husband test, excellent.
