Dip into this amazing roasted CURRY cauliflower dip with crackers and chips! This recipe is healthy, vegan, easy to make, and a great addition for your next party. It tastes like hummus but isn’t hummus!
Last time I made my golden cauliflower curry with potatoes, I was really obsessed with how easy and delicious it was. So I asked myself: how can I get more of this good stuff into my system without making the same dish again? The answer is THIS DIP. First, I baked cauliflower florets and jalapeños in the oven so they get nicely roasted. Second, I blended the cauliflower, jalapeños, and delicious things (e.g., olive oil, curry powder, garlic, lemon juice, parsley, sea salt, pepper) in a food processor. And THAT’S IT and you have this amazing, super flavorful dip!
Like I mentioned earlier, I love how this roasted curry cauliflower dip tastes like hummus — but, most importantly, is much easier to make than hummus. I love hummus dips but I’m not crazy about making them. Hummus requires the use of tahini paste, and I try to avoid using specialty ingredients in my recipes whenever possible. Because I know that I’m not going to use that tahini paste for anything else in my cooking.
Also, I LOVE it whenever I get to use homegrown/homemade ingredients in my cooking and this recipe was no exception:
- jalapeños: YEP my garden is still growing wild and I was able to use ripe jalapeños for this dish.
- parsley: I harvested all of the leaves from my parsley plant awhile ago, so I was able to use some of my homegrown dried parsley.
- sea salt: I’m loving the homemade Kauai sea salt that my relatives-in-law sent me. Also, sea salt just looks beautiful.
This roasted curry cauliflower dip has a great texture: smooth but still sticky enough so that it’s easy to use a cracker or chip to scoop up a good chunk of it. And it’s jam-packed with flavors: the curry, garlic, and lemon are prominent flavors and there’s also a charred roasted flavor that comes from the baked cauliflower and jalapeños.
Last but not least, this dish is EASY TO MAKE (2 steps: (1) roast some vegetables, (2) blend in a food processor) so you guys should all try it! And it’s healthy and vegan so it’s great to bring to a potluck or party if you know there are going to be vegetarians or vegans there.
