Recipe Delicious & Healthy Spinach Hummus

Hummus is easy to love.
What’s even more to love are all the variations that can be used to make hummus.
Spinach Hummus gives you the texture of a not too creamy hummus with a nice well balanced 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.

Spinach Hummus


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


Large cookie sheet
Parchment paper
Food processor
Rubber spatula


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 great as a dip.
