  • 1 large head cauliflower approx 5 cups florets
  • 3 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tbsp water or more for desired consistency
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • pinch of ground coriander
  • pepper to taste
  • garnish with olive oil sunflower seeds and chopped parsley


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Remove the florets from the head of cauliflower and place on a baking tray. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil (or avocado oil) and toss to combine. Place the baking tray in the oven and roast for 20 minutes.
  • Transfer the cauliflower to your Vitamix or a food processor. Add the tahini, remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, water, lemon juice, garlic clove, salt, cumin and coriander. Add pepper to taste. Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with sunflower seeds and chopped parsley.



  • I love making hummus in my Vitamix as it's ultra creamy. But you may need to scrape down the sides of the Vitamix container on this recipe. That's when I put my under blade scraper to good use!
  • If your cauliflower hummus is a bit thick, just add more water (a teaspoon at a time) until it's your desired level of creaminess.
  • Make sure to check out all of my other Vitamix recipes (I use my blender way more than my food processor).
