Planet-Friendly Hummus Pomodoro
This beautiful main course (or starter) is planet-friendly and soooo delicious! The recipe is called Hummus Pomodoro with Warm Pizza Crust, and it’s by the amazing Chef Chloe Coscarelli. The spread is actually a white bean puree with lemon garlic flavor, so think Italian, rather than Middle Eastern.
  1. Blend all ingredients through pepper until smooth.
  2. Combine the tomato and basil. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
  3. You can top the creamy garlic dip with this mixture, or leave in separate bowls.
  4. Spread the delicious creamy dip and tomatoes on warm pizza crusts, crostini, or baguette slices.
Recipe Notes

I made it without the oil just to keep it lighter and it was still really yummy. I added a bit more lemon and some water to make it smooth. I added two cloves garlic rather than just one. The carbon footprint of this recipe is just 89 g CO2eq per serving, compared to a footprint of around 550 g CO2eq per serving for pasta with ground beef and tomato sauce. These numbers highlight how getting protein from legumes and other plant sources can go a long way toward decreasing our footprint.
