Why is it the perfect dip?

It takes only minutes to make
It has very few calories
It’s full of flavor and completely customizable to your liking

1 cup of cauliflower has about 28 calories,

1 cup of garbanzo beans has about 269 calories.

That is a HUGE difference. So at 28 calories, you can eat it all yourself! Sharing is overrated sometimes, don’t you think.

Now for anyone who isn’t eating low carb, don’t worry you can add in garbanzo beans if you prefer or give the ALL CAULIFLOWER version a try, it’s yummy!
