Then they told us about broccoli hummus. I love hummus, but chickpeas, while delicious and protein-rich, also pack a lot of carbs. And I thought, maybe brassica oleracea really is a magical plant: I'll try it.
Believe you me, it's a miracle. The recipe I started with also had zucchini added, which I didn't have on hand and am not a huge fan of anyways - so I forged ahead with just broccoli, and the usual delicious add-ins; garlic, lemon juice, tahini, cumin.
Ok, maybe it tastes a bit like broccoli. But that's alright with me. I like vegetables.
(This version doesn't have added oil or salt, because I'm trying to really optimize these days when it comes to nutrition. You might want to throw in a spoonful of extra virgin olive oil, and a bit of salt to taste.)
- 200g broccoli, steamed
- 1Tbs tahini
- 1-2Tbs lemon juice
- 1 clove of garlic
- cumin to taste (~1ts)
