Healthy White Bean and Kale Hummus

  • SERVINGS: Makes 2 1/2 cups
  • FAST

This hummus is both tasty and extra healthy. The creamy white beans and slightly chewy kale give it a lot of texture and flavor.

  1. 2 large kale leaves, inner stems removed
  2. One 14-ounce can white beans, drained and rinsed (about 2 cups)
  3. 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons tahini
  4. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  5. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from about 1/2 a lemon)
  6. 1 clove of garlic
  7. 3/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  8. 2 to 3 tablespoons water
  9. 1/4 teaspoon Bragg Liquid Aminos or low-sodium soy sauce
  1. Add the kale leaves and about 2 tablespoons of water to a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Cover and steam for 2 minutes, or until kale is soft. Remove from the heat and drain any remaining water.
  2. Add the kale and all the remaining ingredients except the water to a food processor or high-powered blender. Pulse until everything is combined then add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the hummus is a smooth, thick and spreadable consistency. Taste and add more salt if necessary.
Make Ahead Hummus can be made up to 3 days in advance and stored in a covered container in your fridge or frozen for up to 1 month. Notes Bragg Liquid Aminos is a salt- and preservative-free type of soy sauce. It's available at health food stores and on Serve With Crackers, bread, or veggies.
