Creamy Garlic Broccoli & Cauliflower

Creamy Garlic BroccoliIf you are looking for a quick and easy way to jazz up your broccoli and cauliflower side dish, then look no further! This creamy garlic broccoli and cauliflower recipe only uses 5 ingredients and two of them are broccoli and cauliflower!

I love broccoli, but it’s no secret that it is not always a favourite of children! My Miss 3 loves anything that has a ‘sauce’ on it and this recipe ticks that box! Its a great healthy alternative to the stock standard veges with cheese sauce!

I initially saw this recipe as I was browsing through Pinterest and pinned it about 2 years ago. I only recently rediscovered it when I was looking for inspiration on what to put with dinner. It was a very exciting rediscovery and I couldn’t wait to make it! When I put the dish on the table it was clean within minutes which is a record for a vegetable dish in our house!

Here is what you will need…

1 cup Broccoli
1 cup Cauliflower
1/4 cup Garlic Hummus
1 tsp Lemon Juice
Pepper to season


  1. Cut broccoli and cauliflower into small chunks
  2. Cook the vegetables how you like…¬†steam it, bake it, grill it or pan fry it in a little olive oil
  3. Transfer cooked vegetables to a large bowl
  4. Mix through garlic hummus until well combined
  5. Add lemon juice and pepper to taste
  6. Serve warm or cold
  7. ENJOY!


**Tip: You can change up the flavour of this side dish simply by choosing a different flavour of hummus as the sauce, try beetroot or pumpkin or even basil hummus. Yum!
