Chef Jenn's Tips

  • Thin the low-carb Cauliflower Hummus as it pulses in the food processor, with a tablespoon of water at a time until it is silky and smooth but still scoopable.
  • This easy keto appetizer can be made ahead of time - it'll keep in the fridge and intensify in flavor.
  • Everyone - even non ketoers - love this recipe, so make enough to share!
