Description

When using Swiss chard, it can be easy to throw out the stalks in favor of the greens. With this recipe, you’ll never throw them away again! 

Ingredients

1 pound
Swiss chard (stalks, trimmed and chopped)
1 clove
garlic (peeled)
1/4 cup
tahini
1/4 cup
olive oil, extra virgin
2 tablespoons
lemon juice (fresh)
1/2 teaspoon
salt

Instructions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the stalks until very tender, 18-20 minutes, and drain.

Place the garlic in a food processor and pulse until chopped. Add the chard stalks and puree, then add the remaining ingredients and process until very smooth.

Transfer to a shallow bowl, drizzle with olive oil, and serve at room temperature. The hummus can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
