Spinach hummus is a delicious variation of Traditional Middle Eastern hummus that's rather easy and is sure to be a crowd pleaser. If the hummus doesn't come out to the consistency you are looking for, add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until you reach the desired texture.

Ingredients

  • 1 can garbanzo beans/chickpeas (15 oz), drained
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons garlic
  • 3 tablespoons​ lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Steps to Make It

  1. In a food processor, process beans, garlic, spinach and olive oil. Add lemon and salt and blend. If spinach hummus is too thick, add 1 tablespoon water until desired consistency. Hummus should be smooth and creamy.

  2. Spinach hummus can be made up to two days in advance. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator. It can be served hot or cold. Serve with pita bread, pita chips, or fresh veggies.
