Guacamummus or Hummamole!

Gimme Some Oven  http://gimmesomeoven.com 

With a name like Guacamummus or hummamole…I had to give this a thumbs up for a fun Super Bowl dip. This recipe is from the blog, Gimme Some Oven! Check out this blog for some fun and crazy recipes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1 (15 oz.) can of chickpeas, drained
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 2 Tbsp. tahini (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. salt (more or less to taste)

Method:

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.  Add in a few extra tablespoons of water to thin out the consistency if you’d like.

Ali’s Tip:

Feel free to add in the chopped red onion at the end (instead of blending it in the food processor) if you’d like a less strong onion flavor!

Walnut Kale Butter  / Whole Foods Market  (www.wholefoodsmarket.com)

Thanks to Foodportunity and Whole Foods Market, I am now in love with Walnut Kale Butter.  This spread is great on crackers, wraps, or as a sandwich spread.

Walnut Kale Butter
(Makes 1 cup)

  • 1 bunch kale, rinsed and chopped
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • ½ cup water
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ cup minced rosemary
    Steam the kale for 5 minutes, until tender. Blend the cooked kale with the walnuts and ½ cup of the green water from steaming. Add salt to taste. Process in blender until smooth. Add rosemary and blend again. Enjoy!
