Ok, full disclosure.
There are no hummus ingredients in this bowl of low carb hummus. But trust me, this dip embodies the true essence of hummus. That makes sense, right?
So instead of chickpeas, which are low carb no-nos, I used cooked cauliflower.
And in place of garlic, lemon and tahini, I used Thai red curry paste. The result is a very convincing low carb hummus with only 43 calories and 2g net carbs per serving. Not too shabby for a bowl of fake hummus.
Not too shabby at all.
