Garlic Scape Hummus
I have a thing for hummus, especially a garlicky hummus (receipts). This Garlic Scape Hummus is my summertime jam! It gives me the yum of hummus with an extra garlicky kick from the scapes. Make this and let me know how much you love it.
Garlic scapes are the stalk or stem of the garlic bulb. (They’re the green, curly guys in the pic above.) You can learn all about garlic scapes in this post.
Rinse scapes and pat them dry before chopping.
Make sure beans are thoroughly drained before using. Excess liquid will give you a soupy hummus.
Strainer (for draining beans)
Pushin’ those processor buttons!
- 1 ½ cups chopped garlic scape
- 1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon or lime juice
- ½ teaspoon sesame oil
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Combine the scape, beans, lemon or lime juice and sesame oil in a food processor and process until smooth, about a minute. While the processor runs, gradually add the olive oil and continue processing until the hummus is smooth and creamy. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with sliced veggies or pita chips.
- Serves 4-6.
