leefromamerica: Kale Pesto Hummus and Raw Brussels Sprout Salad! This was a perfect lunch for me. Everything I love about fall flavors and textures. The raw brussels sprout salad was heavily inspired by my meal at Sqirl in Los Angeles last week.  Kale Pesto Hummus: 2 cups of kale 1 cup  garbanzo beans 2 tbsp EVOO juice of 1/2 a lemon pinch of maldon sea salt 1/4 cup walnuts 1 clove of garlic 2 tbsp tahini Blend everything together until creamy. You may need to stop the blender and push everything down so everything mixes completely. Makes the most glorious green colored hummus! So easy on the eyes :) Brussels salad: 4 cups of brussels 3 tbsp walnuts 1/4 cup hazelnuts salt + peppa lemon olive oil- just a splash 1 jazz apple 1 persimmon Wash your brussels well. Shave the brussels sprouts very thinly and place in a bowl. Drizzle olive oil and lemon onto the brussels and toss to coat evenly. Cut the apple into thin slices and toss into the salad. Add nuts. Then cut and add the persimmons. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve!
