Cauliflower and White Bean Hummus

Did you watch the Academy Awards last night? Me, kind of...when my kids would allow me to. All you mama's out there know how that goes. I was thumbing through the Everyday Food magazine the other day while waiting in line at the check stand and came across a recipe for a cauliflower and white bean dip that looked a lot like hummus. I quickly took a mental not of the ingredients and knew that it would be a perfect snack/dinner to have while watching the Oscars tonight.

Cauliflower and White Bean Hummus
1 head cauliflower
6 cloves garlic
1 can white beans
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup almond milk
Mrs. Dash Original

Start by cutting up your head of cauliflower into bit size pieces.

Lay out on a cookie sheet along with your garlic, spray with a mist of olive oil and sprinkle cauliflower with Mrs. Dash or you seasoning of choice.

Roast at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until cauliflower has softened.

While it cauliflower is roasting, open the can of white beans drain the beans and rinse with water.

Add beans, roasted cauliflower, garlic, Dijon mustard, lemon juice and olive oil to your blender.

Blend until the dip is smooth, adding almond milk by the tablespoonful until it reaches the desired consistency, you may not need the entire 1/4 cup.

This will make about 2 cups of dip, I counted 1/2 cup as a serving because 1 serving of protein in PINK is  half a cup of beans.

Would you like a bite?
Serve with cut up vegetables.

I also made some vegetable stuffed mushrooms to complete the meal. A great little snack/dinner to have while  watching the Oscars. This would also be a great dish to take to a party so that you know that something there will be PINK approved.
