I doubt that there is anything close. Sometimes, you just have to 80/20 it and enjoy a few antinutrients for the sake of your own sanity. If you need to paleo justify it in your mind, at times, I'm sure Grok would eat things that were less than optimal. When Grok was in great distress (starving) I'm sure he became a very creative eater-- really pushed paleolithic culinary limits. I bet he even ate poisonous stuff too; how else did his descendants learn that legumes and grains could be eaten in certain conditions (cooking).
Therefore, even grok 80/20'd it some times, and hummus is permissible in (limited doses) during times of distress (you are hungry) and availability (a tub of hummus fell into your shopping cart all on its own). Just don't make a habit of it.
I've noticed all these recipes have tahini, which is on my personal "out" list in my diet. I as well miss hummus. I have found that guacamole is a pretty good paleo replacement. It's not hummus, but if you want to stay as paleo or anti-inflammatory as possible, guac is the way to go.
I'll indulge in a tub of hummus occasionally (once a month or less). I try to make sure that it's made with any oils other than soybean or canola, with as few preservatives as possible. I'll either eat it by the spoonful or use a veggie stick (carrot, celery) as a scoop.
I've failed to find any substitute that successfully substitutes for hummus, I'll indulge on occasion.
My stand-ins are usually baba ganoush made with grilled or broiled eggplant or zucchini hummus made by substituting peeled, sometimes roasted, sometime raw zucchini for the chickpeas. In both cases I go heavy on the tahini since its my favorite tasting note.
Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo has a delicious hummus made with cauliflower.
4 cups cauliflower steamed 2 TBL tahini 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 lemon, juice & zest for garnish pinch of cumin sea salt & pepper to taste
Combine everything (but lemon zest) in a food processor. Garnish with lemon zest, paprika and 1 TBL olive oil
I've made really delicious Paleo hummus using roasted red peppers and poblano peppers.
It's extremely delicious and I don't miss the chickpeas a bit!
I've made it with raw zucchini, it tastes awesome. Here's the recipe (I peel the zucchini):
Here's a recipe for baba ghanouj, which is my current favorite:
Yes! I made a delicious paleo hummus from cauliflower. I posted the link on my blog to where I got the recipe. http://www.urbancavegirl.com/2012/07/spicy-roasted-cauliflower-dip-hummus.html?zx=607c24edea8e0a97&m=1
I've been waiting to try this recipe for sweet potato hummus. Just bought the tahini.
