There are so many ways to use hummus, it’s not just a dip! This Garlic Kale Hummus is the perfect healthy flavor enhancer for any dish! Gluten-free, vegan, and packed with nutrition and flavor, you’ll be adding this hummus to all your meals!
It feels like I just posted for the Recipe ReDux! I do really love these monthly “challenge” themes! I’m stretching the theme a bit this month, but again, I’m working as best I can with the recipes I had made and photographed from home! A few more weeks and I can actually get back in the kitchen and working again! The list of recipe ideas I have is crazy and I can’t wait to start crossing them off! Ah!
March’s Theme – We’re all about cooking once and eating twice. In short, double dinners are better. Show us how you take a favorite recipe already on your blog – and ReDux the leftovers into a new dish. Or, whip up a new healthy recipe and give suggestions on how to make it a second meal. For example, slow cooker pot roast could become shredded beef tacos; or grilled chicken breasts might morph into chicken salad.
Since I last shared about my undieing love for hummus (including the history and what authentic hummus is), I’ve been waiting to share this awesome flavor combo with you too. First of all, everyone loves a recipe that sneaks in some extra greens and people seem to love garlic. This isn’t an overpowering garlic flavor though, I personally only like a touch of the flavor, unless it’s black garlic! I’ll take loads of black garlic any day!
Besides the great and green flavor and color of this simple hummus, it can be used for just about anything. Hummus is just so versatile! So not only does it fit the March theme of two for one, but more like 80 for one! Haha! So let’s list the many ways you can use hummus!
Dip (the obvious!)
Spread (for sandwiches!)
Mix into pastas for a nice creamy sauce
Bake it into casseroles
Coat chicken or fish with it
Mix it into dinner bowls
Use it in place of mayo
Garlic Kale Hummus
Ingredients: (makes about 2 heaping cups)
+ 2 Cups Cooked Chickpeas
+ 1 Cup Torn and Washed Kale
+ 1/2 Tsp Fresh Chopped Garlic
+ 1/2 Tsp Onion Powder
+ 1/4 Tsp Black Pepper
+ 1/4 Cup Water
+ Place the chickpeas, kale, spices, and water into a food processor (or blender).
+ Pulse and blend until smooth! Then let chill in the fridge and store in an airtight container for about 1 week. It’s also very easily freezable by placing flat in a plastic bag!
I’m convinced that if everyone ate hummus and always had it in the house, the world would be a better place! It’s so healthy, easy to make, versatile with it’s endless uses, so yummy, the perfect food for gatherings and parties with provokes happiness, and simply for that fact that…it’s HUMMUS!
