I’m always thinking about how I can make more spreads to go on our veggie sandwiches/wraps. Plain or Red Pepper Hummus is generally our go-to spread but I’m learning to venture out a little. I’m always looking for ways to get more healthy greens into my daily diet so I came up with this “Kale Garlic Sandwich Spread”. (I’ll go into detail about kale soon – all the details you need!)
First I start with one bunch of kale – I like to use Lacinato Kale the most, also called “Black Kale” or “Elephant Kale. There are two other kinds of kale – red and green. The red and green look similar except for the color. They are a little more prickly than the lacinato and provide a little different texture. I used green kale for this recipe because that’s all I had on hand.
I also love garlic… who doesn’t!?!
I threw this little mixture together yesterday and it came out pretty good!
* 1 bunch of kale – I used green kale
* 4-6 cloves garlic
* Juice of half a lemon
* Splash of bean-cooking liquid (or water)
* 1 can white beans – drained
* Salt & Pepper to taste
I mixed all these ingredients in my food processor until smooth, scraping the sides along the way.
I wonder if my toddler will eat this on pasta or toast with avocado? Hmmm… I”m going to try that tomorrow!
