Spinach Hummus Recipe

As if in case hummus wasn’t healthy enough already, I have created a hummus recipe with spinach. Not only does this turn the chickpea dip a beautiful colour, but it bumps up the nutritional density without changing the flavour.

You know what seems like a really good deal when you are in the grocery store? A four pound tub of spinach. The thing is, that a 4 pound tub of spinach is a really good idea. But when you only have two people living in your house you either need to make a batch of spanakopita or get creative.

Now, I could pretend I came up with the idea for spinach hummus all on my own, but you are all way to smart for that. Plus I don’t think I can be the only one seeing spinach hummus suddenly all over the grocery store shelves? Maybe I was inspired, or maybe I just had a massive amount of spinach on hand. But I don’t care how this spinach hummus recipe came to be: I have been enjoying it on bagels and with carrots all week long.
