Kale, Coriander and Hemp Hummus for National Vegetarian Week

 

Hummus is a staple in our house, especially now Graham's vegan. It's a great substitute for cheese in sandwiches and wraps. Funnily enough he was never keen on it, but now he loves it.

Rocket Hummus
I often make plain hummus, but sometimes it's fun to add other flavours to it. Here are a few of my hummus recipes:
I like hummus on oatcakes; on a wrap with roast vegetables; on a toasted bagel with falafel and mango chutney; on a mezze plate with grilled halloumi, salad, sun blush tomatoes and falafel (yes it goes very well with falafel); as a topping on a veggie burger in a bun with salad on the bottom, in a finger roll with a veggie sausage with fried onions.

Mmmmmm! I'm in the mood to eat more hummus now!

I was really pleased with the combination of kale, coriander and hemp in this hummus and the fact its super healthy is just a bonus.

I'll leave you to try it and see what you think.

    1. I mostly add it to my smoothies Anca, but I thought why not add it to hummus too.

    1. I usually add it to smoothies Jen,but it's easily added to other dishes to perk up the nutrients.

  5. Mmmm I love the thought of kale in hummus and love hemp seeds when I get them (it is actually illegal to sell them for culinary use in Australia so they are sold for skin products which perhaps means they haven't taken off here) - though I still can't do fresh coriander but I think parsley would do me fine here. Hummus is a staple in our house too - sylvia only likes it plain but I need it differently sometime so will have to try this

  7. Oooh goodness this sounds heavenly! Beautiful colour too. I have hemp seeds in my cupboard, but they are whole shelled ones like little rocks! My Optimum blender makes short work of them though, so they are edible!

  10. Love the 'added value' addition of hemp, kale and coriander - good call for an already nutritious and delicious recipe. :-)
