QUICK & FRESH Kare-Kare Hummus

Kare Kare. Hummus. You probably wouldn’t have guessed to see them in one sentence. Instead of buying store-bought hummus, make your own! Making hummus at home is easy! The secret to making it extra smooth & creamy? Our Kare Kare sauce. Swap the tahini for our sauce to add a little extra nutty flavor. 

Traditionally, Kare Kare is a stew made with slow-cooked oxtail, simmered in meaty, peanut sauce. The orange color comes from annatto seeds. It is thick and very hearty.

This homemade Kare Kare Hummus is done in mere minutes. Combine chopped garlic, chickpeas, warm spices, olive oil, and our Kare Kare in the food processor and pulse to your desired consistency. Like it thick, creamy, and nutty? Add as much Kare Kare to your heart’s desire. Like it thin? Add some water for a lighter, fluffier hummus. Top with a final drizzle of good olive oil or maybe even some extra Kare Kare and enjoy!

This unctuous take on hummus can be enjoyed at any time of day. Accompany it with some pita bread and veggies or on a sandwich for a light lunch, serve it with a spread of mezze, or swipe some grilled chicken and vegetables through the dip for a hearty dinner. This hummus pairs best with a nice white wine or light rose to complement the bold nutty flavors. If anything, always make more than you think you’ll need—if you’re like us, Kare Kare hummus doesn’t last a day in the fridge.
