BEWARE: Do not let your picky eaters see the ingredients of this recipe. What they don’t know, can improve their health 🙂
1 can drained garbanzos (chick peas)
2 T chopped fresh kale & turnip greens* (for best results stick them in the food processor)
1 1/4 cup milk (I use soymilk)
1/2 cup butter or your favorite substitute (I use Smart Balance)
3 tsp. baking powder (try to use aluminum free – can get at most health food stores)
1.5 – 2 tsp. salt (depending on how salty you like biscuits)
2 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
Blend everything except the flour in your blender until all the green specks disappear. When you are finished it will have a creamy texture and be a light yellow/light green color. Pour the mixture into a mixing bowl and gradually stir in flour. Add flour until it becomes a moist dough (it won’t be too dry, but it won’t be sticky either). Form into biscuits and bake at 450 degrees for about 8 minutes. You can also bake them for 4 minutes on one side and flip them and bake them for another 4 minutes. The biscuits will be a golden color when they are done baking.
Don’t let the ingredients fool you, these are delicious biscuits! My husband, who did not grow up on health food, loves them! If you like your biscuits a little sweet try adding about 2 tablespoons agave nectar. Eat these soft biscuits with butter and jam or with melted cheese! Yummy!
*Can substitute favorite greens, but keep in mind that while spinach may be the tastiest green, it’s not the healthiest.
