Vegan Broccoli Hummus
We like our broccoli very lightly cooked. In this recipe I blanch the broccoli and then run it through the food processor. This is a very healthy recipe. It’s also vegan and gluten free.
1 large head of broccoli, cut into one inch pieces and blanched
2 cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. saracha
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tbsp. lemon juice
½ c. olive oil.
To blanch the broccoli, boil a medium sized saucepan full of about six cups of water. Add the cut broccoli to the boiling water and remove the water from the heat. Use a large spoon to turn the broccoli in the water for one minute before removing it from the water to drain.
Allow the broccoli to cool for fifteen minutes. In a food processor, process the broccoli and the olive oil until the mixture is smooth. It may be necessary to open the processor to push the larger pieces of broccoli down once or twice. Add the rest of the ingredients, and process until the mixture is smooth. This may take several minutes. Transfer the humus to a bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Allow to chill in the fridge for one hour before serving. Serve with gluten free chips or crackers or fresh veggies. Enjoy!
