  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Water if needed
  • *For the Roasted Cauliflower:
  • 1/2 of a medium cauliflower washed and dried
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons bread crumbs
  • *For the Sautéed Dressing:
  • 1/2 small red onion chopped
  • 1 cup mix of basil parsley, and kale, chopped
  • 1/4 cup homemade dehydrated cherry tomatoes

  • 3 tablespoons silvered almonds

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Slice the cauliflower into florets and toss with olive oil and bread crumbs. Roast in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and crunchy.
  • While the cauliflower is roasting, let’s dive into making the hummus. In a food processor, start by adding a fresh garlic clove and the juice of half a lemon. Pulse for a few seconds to create a zesty base.
  • To the zesty base, add the cooked Christmas lima beans, kidney beans, olive oil, chili sauce, cumin, and a pinch of salt. Blend until smooth, adding water if needed for that perfect, velvety consistency.
  • Now, let’s whip up the sautéed dressing. In a pan, sauté red onion until tender. Add basil, parsley, kale, homemade dehydrated cherry tomatoes, fresh feijoa, silvered almonds, and the secret touch – pomegranate paste. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the flavors meld into a delicious medley.
  • Assemble your masterpiece! Spread the warm hummus on a plate, layer it with the crunchy roasted cauliflower, and generously pour the sautéed dressing over the top. Garnish with fresh pomegranate seeds.
  • Before serving the hummus, consider warming it up for an extra cozy touch. Pop it in the microwave or gently warm it on the stove.

Notes

  • For the hummus, start by adding garlic and lemon juice and pulsing for a few seconds before blending in the other ingredients for a burst of zesty freshness.
  • Warm the hummus before serving for a comforting experience.
  • Cauliflower not only delights the palate but also packs a nutritional punch with vitamins and antioxidants, promoting heart and digestive health. Feijoa, also known as pineapple guava, adds a tropical twist to your dish and is a rich source of vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants.
