  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine the cauliflower florets and shallot pieces. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil, smoked paprika, rosemary, ¼ teaspoon salt and peppers. Toss gently to coat. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  • Roast the vegetables until the cauliflower is tender, turning halfway through, 20 to 25 minutes total.
  • Let the vegetables cool slightly, cut the roots off of the shallot pieces and transfer to a food processor.
  • While the vegetables are roasting, lightly toast the hazelnuts in a small skillet set over medium heat. Stir frequently and keep an eye on the nuts so they don’t burn.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of the hazelnuts to the vegetable in the food processor, along with the remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt. Puree the mixture until almost smooth.
  • With the food processor running, drizzle in the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil.
  • Transfer the dip to a serving bowl, garnish with a drizzle of olive oil (if desired) and parsley. Serve with raw vegetables, pita triangles or tortilla chips.
