Sausage Green Bean and Kale Japche

When I get Korean food in my head it becomes like that annoying song that just won’t leave your brain until you hear it. We leave Cooking Channel on in the background at my job and they have a new Korean food show, so I am probably going to be craving these flavors a lot more often! I saw some Japche noodles on tv while I was at work the other day, and immediately made them when I got home. I wanted to use all the veggies I had on hand instead of buying a ton of stuff, so I got the noodles and headed home hoping there would be some good stuff in the fridge. I had this delicious Jones Dairy Farm sausage and some great veggies that made for a fun twist on the traditional noodle dish.

Welcome to hummus week! Every day this week I’m gonna be blasting you guys with new and awesome hummus recipes! Hummus week is brought to you by Sabra. I was recently lucky enough to take a trip to their hummus factory and spent an awesome day meeting new and old friends and learning about hummus. If you want to know more about the trip itself, Nick at Macheesmo (who I met IRL for the first time after being e-friends for over 4 years!) captured it pretty well here.

I couldn’t start hummus week though without actually making a batch from scratch. I’ll tell you guys a few things about making hummus from scratch. The good news is it is crazy cheap and crazy delicious. You can make a decently large batch and split it to make a few different flavors, and it keeps really well. The bad news is it’s a real pain to make and in the end the hummus from Sabra is better anyways. That being said, I had fun making it, and when I say from scratch, I mean super scratch, like making the tahini paste and everything!
