    Kimchi-Sesame Hummus


    This Kimchi-Sesame Hummus recipe is a fun new twist on a classic Middle Eastern appetizer. Classic is great (you might put together a hummus masabacha), but sometimes I like switching things up. And this Korean-inspired hummus just fits the bill. In this recipe, kimchi gets blended into the hummus to add a flavorful kick and probiotic goodness. It is delicious, healthy, and beyond simple to make.

    Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Feel free to adjust the hummus by adding more garlic, rice vinegar, kimchi or salt as needed. Serve the hummus topped with a little chopped kimchi, sliced green onions, and lots of raw vegetables, or just keep it in an airtight container in the fridge for snacking. Enjoy!
