I love hummus but chickpeas are obviously out on a keto diet because of their high carb count. To make this creamy keto Buffalo Hummus we're using a handy stand in, cauliflower!

We start by roasting the cauliflower until soft, and then blending with a bit of tahini, spices, garlic, and buffalo sauce. You can even use sriracha sauce or make your own Fermented Sriracha (so good!), especially if you want to avoid any added sugar.

Now comes the fun part, the toppings! I’ve used some crumbled blue cheese, sliced green onions, and a splash of buffalo sauce on the top. Serve it with celery stick or your favorite low carb chip or keto crackers!
