Zingy Hearts of Palm Hummus

    I must admit that I have missed hummus and other creamy dips since I got serious about eating for my health.  Not anymore!  I actually found this by accident, strolling the aisles of Costco and coming across "Hearts of Palm."  It's a whole food, has no crazy additives, so I thought, why not?  What another fun, exciting food to try!  After googling around a bit, it became clear that these could be blended easily to make a good creamy dip.  Even my "non-paleo" friends (which would be all of my friends) loved this!  The texture is perfect and the raw garlic really gives it a great flavor with a nice zing.  

Ingredients

  • 26 oz jar hearts of palm

  • 3 garlic cloves

  • zest of 1 lemon

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • salt and pepper to taste (can try 1/8 tsp salt and add more if needed)

  • carrots, celery or other dipping devices

Directions

  1. Add everything to a blender.
  2. Blend! I recommend doing 3-5 second pulses until desired texture is reached
