Real Food Friday Recipe :: Roasted Broccoli Hummus
Welcome the weekend with hummus.
We think that this dip is the perfect weekend food as you can take it along to potlucks and parties, make a batch and snack on it all weekend or eat it for lunch when you’re feeling lazy. Due to the fact that we like to keep things interesting, we’re offering you a roasted broccoli hummus, something a little unique to your usual choices.
We have some beautiful broccoli from Johnson’s Backyard Garden that’ll make this recipe drool-worthy. This recipe isn’t just unique because of the broccoli, it also calls for water instead of oil, which lowers the calorie count and allows for the flavors of garlic and broccoli to shine through.
Happy eating (and happy weekend!)
Roasted Broccoli Hummus
From: Not Without Salt
- 15 ounces of cooked white beans
- 1/2 pound roasted broccoli
- 6 garlic cloves, roasted (these are roasted with the broccoli, sweet on the outside with a pleasant garlic heat internally)
- 1 Tbs lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp lemon zest
- 1 Tbsp tahini
- 1 pound broccoli floret
- 1/4 tsp chili flakes
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
Cook your white beans. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F. Scatter the broccoli across a parchment lined sheet tray. Do not overcrowd the tray as this will cause steaming rather than roasting. Add chili flakes, 2 Tbsp garlic, olive oil and salt. Stir to coat.
Roast 20 minutes or until cooked through with parts of the florets having a nice bit of char. Let cool slightly.
Add all the ingredients to a food processor or blender. Add a little bit of water, 1 Tbsp at a time, to help blend and to achieve desired consistency. Taste and add salt. Season to taste. Can be covered and refrigerated for up to 3 days. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil.
