Recipe Delicious & Healthy Spinach Hummus

Hummus is easy to love. What’s even more to love are all the different variations of hummus. Spinach Hummus gives you the texture of a not too creamy hummus with a nice green flavor from the spinach. It’s very nutritious, it can be a snack, a meal, or just something to share, and it’s also easy to make. I enjoy it as a spread for sandwiches too. Recipe- Spinach Hummus Ingredients- 2 – 14 oz. cans of garbanzo beans, rinsed. 1 ½ C packed raw spinach 4 Cloves garlich, crushed ¼ C Tahini paste 6 T water, may need a little extra 1 T Key West Spice Company® Southernmost Blend 1 T Lemon juice Pinch of salt & pinch of pepper to taste Drizzle of olive oil Equipment- Oven Large cookie sheet Parchment paper Colander Food processor Rubber spatula Directions- Preheat oven to 375° Place rinsed garbanzo beans on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 25 minute, remove, and let cool completely (around 30 minutes–very important!). In a food processor, combine all ingredients except olive oil and blend for at least 10 minutes, using a rubber spatula pressing down hummus mixture occasionally. It will look clumpy until the end. Taste and adjust seasoning, if it’s too thick you can add additional water or a drizzle of olive oil. It’s also OK to add anything else you might want such as diced jalapeno or prepared horseradish for a little extra kick. Put into container and refrigerate until ready to enjoy. Delicious on whole grain toast, can be used as a sandwich spread and it’s also great as a dip. Share the Love!
