Vegan Garlic Sammich Spread

What you need: 

4 cloves garlic
i can white beans; drained
i head kale, stripped of stems
2 tablespoons olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon
sea salt to taste

What you do: 

Mix all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. That's it! This is a really healthy and VERY garlicky sammich spread! I love spreading this over a chewy wheat bread with tomatoes and sprouts.
If you wish to tone down the garlic taste, you can roast the cloves beforehand.
Chip dip alternative: Pulse until chunky, not smooth, and then fold in chopped tomatoes. Serve with toasted pita or your dip chip.

This was surprisingl good. It's not easy finding kale here in France, so I substituted for spinach. It worked wonderfully. I like using its leftovers as a salad dressing, mixed with a small amount of water and a splash of apple cider vinegar.


I was a little bit leery at first because I'm not a fan of my bitter greens raw, but this turned out very well.  I didn't have the exact ingredients, so I ended up using green chard and garbanzo beans.  I only used three cloves of garlic because they were huge ones and I didn't find the garlic overwhelming at all (but I love, love, love garlic).  We ate this spread for dinner on homemade whole-wheat bread with lettuce, veganaise, and dijon mustard.  Very different, but pretty good.  I would make this again.
