Spinach Hummus

I really enjoy different varieties of hummus.  Hummus is a satisfying snack or lunch for me.  Lately, I have been enjoying spinach hummus on whole wheat tortillas.

Spinach Hummus
(printable recipe)
1 - 15 ounce can garbanzo beans
1 cup fresh spinach leaves (packed)
2 teaspoons roasted sesame tahini
2 tablespoons safflower oil
1 teaspoon tamari
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon water
1 1/2 teaspoons white vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients in food processor until smooth.  Serve with vegetables, pita bread, pita or tortilla chips.


  1. Yes Please! I'm going to try it this week.

  2. I really love the color of this. Dips and spreads are really popular in my house and this will be one they really enjoy. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  3. this looks swell, am bookmarking this !

  4. I like the twist of spinach in this recipe! And the color is so bright!

  5. I've never made a different color hummus, other than the one with the color of the chick peas and tahini. Although I did add other flavors, and spices, but adding spinach is a geniu idea. Love the color, the texture, and could only imagine how yummy it is!
    Thanks for sharing:D

  6. What a great idea! I love spinach dips, but they've become a little monotonous (plus the little green pieces get kinda stuck!)

  7. Do you drain the beans or add the water from the can as well?
