Homemade Spinach Hummus

Hummus is one of the easiest snack to make and it makes large batches, this is perfect for company or days of snacking! I originally intended to make sun dried tomato hummus, but I did not have the patience to wait 7+ hours for the tomatoes to dehydrate.

-You will need 15oz can chickpeas, 1 cup packed spinach, olive oil, cumin, garlic, salt, chili powder and lemon juice.

My method:

In a food processor combine the chickpeas, 2 T olive oil, 1/4 t cumin, 1/2 t salt, 1/2 T lemon juice, spinach and chili powder to taste. [ My measurements are approximate because I kept adjusting as we pureed the peas.

-Taste the hummus throughout the blending and make adjustments that suit your taste buds.
-Enjoy with tortilla chips, pita, carrots, celery, etc…
-This is also an incredibly affordable snack to make vs buy!

Do you have a favorite type of hummus other than the original? Or a favorite brand?

    Have you thought of adding tahinni? It is crushed sesame seeds and added to most hummus recipes that we have. Having fun with the parents!!! Tom in Alabama
