  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper
  • Chop cauliflower into florets and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Place on cookie sheet.
  • Remove loose outer layer of whole garlic head. Cut off about 1/4 of the tips of the garlic head. Drissel 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the head and seal in foil or tied parchment paper.
  • Roast garlic for 15 minutes in the oven.
  • Add the pan of cauliflower to oven and roast for 30 minutes or until cauliflower is soft and just starting to brown
  • Remove cauliflower and garlic from the oven and allow to cool.
  • When cool enough to handle, open garlic pack and squeeze garlic cloves out of the skin into a Vitamix blender.
  • Add roasted cauliflower, 2 tbsp olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, cumin, salt, and 4 tbsp of almond milk to blender. If you like a thinner hummus you might need to add a bit more almond milk. Blend until creamy on power 4 scraping sides down every few minutes. It took me about 4 minutes to get the smooth consistency I wanted.
  • Garnish with 2 tbsp of olive oil. You might also like to garnish with chopped basil, whole sesame seeds, bits of roasted cauliflower, or a sprinkle of cumin powder.
