  • 1 x 420g tin chickpeas
  • 75ml (5 tbsp) Westfalia Lemon Flavoured Avocado Oil
  • 45ml (3 tbsp) Westfalia Garlic Flavoured Avocado Oil
  • 5ml (1 tsp) cumin seeds
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) paprika
  • 200g cauliflower florets and stems, cut into pieces
  • 80ml (⅓ cup) tahini (sesame seed paste, available from large supermarkets or health stores)
  • 45ml (3 tbsp) fresh lemon juice
  • 5ml (1 tsp) finely grated lemon rind
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) chopped Italian parsley and extra leaves for garnish
  • 1 x 200g tub Westfalia Spicy or Plain Guacamole
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 200 °C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Drain the chickpeas but keep about 80ml of the liquid for blending.
  3. Mix half of each oil with the spices in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Toss chickpeas and cauliflower in the oil mixture. Spoon onto the baking tray.
  5. Roast chickpeas and cauliflower for 15-20 minutes or until cauliflower is just tender and chickpeas are crispy. Spoon 60ml of the roasted chickpeas out and set aside as garnish for later. Allow ingredients to cool before blending.
  6. Place chickpeas and cauliflower with all the seasoned oil from the baking tray in a food processor or large bowl. Add the remaining oils, tahini, lemon juice, rind, retained chickpea liquid and parsley.
  7. Blend in the processor or with a stick blender until well blended.
  8. Gently fold guacamole with a wooden spoon into the hummus until mixed through and season to taste. Add more oil or chickpea liquid if you prefer a softer texture.

Spoon the Guacamole and cauliflower hummus onto a plate, spread evenly and garnish with the retained chickpeas, a drizzle of plain or lemon-flavoured avocado oil, pepper and parsley.
