Paleo Cauliflower Hummus

My husband has become interested in the paleo diet.  Have you heard about it yet?  I’m definitely NOT an expert in it but basically there is a heavy emphasis on meat and vegetables while you exclude grain.  You’re eating what the paleolithic man would have eaten.  I’ve been doing a lot of research to get ideas and have found some great food.

I found a cookbook by Sarah Fragoso called Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook.  It’s great and has real recipes with normal ingredients.  Last Sunday we tried out our first recipe from the book and we weren’t disappointed.  It was this Cauliflower Hummus. . We ate it with veggies and olives and had a delicious and healthy snack.  It didn’t feel like we were eating something healthy, just having a delicious snack!  Try it out and let us know about it.

      Thanks Stephanie! You will love the cookbook and keep checking back we will be having more Paleo down the road. I just got another slow cooker cookbook for Paleo dishes. I’ll let you know what I think and share some dishes to try before you purchase it.
