Ingredients

  • 1 head of garlic
  • 3 tablespoons Kale Whole Food Crystals (More or less as desired!)
  • 1 15oz can chickpeas (drained)
  • 3 tablespoons of water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (extra reserved for garlic head)
  • 3 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • Salt and pepper to taste (start with ½ teaspoon)
  • I like spice so I added a dash of chili flakes (optional)

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 400F.
  • Remove excess layers from garlic head and slice the top off the garlic, allow for the cloves to be exposed.
  • Sprinkle salt and olive oil over garlic cloves.
  • Place in a dish or on a cookie sheet and place in oven for 20 minutes.
  • Once garlic is roasted, remove cloves and place in blender.
  • Add all ingredients, except for Kale and blend until a smooth consistency forms. Ensure that texture is appropriate for desired taste by adding more lemon, olive oil, or water.
  • Add Kale in 1 tablespoons at a time, blending and tasting in between to ensure desired flavor is achieved.
  • Serve with your favorite crackers!
  • May be stored in the fridge in an airtight container.
