The world lost a beautiful soul yesterday. Not only was Prince one of the greatest musicians of our time, he was a long time vegan and animal rights activist! So in honor of Prince and his love of purple, we present Raw Purple Cauliflower Hummus. 🙂 It won’t bring Prince back, but we think he would appreciate it.
This Raw Purple Cauliflower Hummus has only seven ingredients and is ready in five minutes, how cool is that? We loved it with 3 large cloves of garlic, but it was super garlicky. Cut it down to 2 cloves if you prefer hummus without a bite at the end. 😉
- 1 large head purple cauliflower
- 1/3 cup tahini
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 large lemon, juiced
- 2-3 cloves garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.
- Put on your favorite Prince song and eat this Purple Raw’n Cauliflower Hummus while dancing and celebrating his life!
NOTE: This will stay fresh in the fridge for 1-2 days. To keep the hummus purple, cover it with plastic wrap before storing in an airtight container.
Not only are we celebrating Prince’s life and music, but it’s also Earth Day! I can’t think of a better way to honor Mother Earth than being a vegan and eating the colorful bounty she has to offer. Purple Cauliflower Hummus FTW! One day, we will make an entire meal out of purple vegetables and fruits. Until then, we’ll munch on this purple hummus with pleasure. 🙂

Isn’t raw cauliflower going to cause some trouble though??? I think I’m going to try it lightly steamed!!
