Hummus is a healthy, easy, portable dip, dressing, spread and more. Except that it is on the carb-heavy side. This version, which uses steamed cauliflower or raw zucchini (you choose) for the chickpeas, is a great alternative. (I’ve used leftover cauliflower rice for the steamed cauliflower and it has worked beautifully!)
