Spinach Hummus Dip

It wouldn't be fair to make Spinach Hummus and 
Gluten Free Crackers without sharing the recipe!

Spinach Hummus Dip
created by Snacking Squirrel

2 cups fresh spinach
1 can rinsed chickpeas
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/8 cup tahini
1/8 cup water
Dash paprika + cumin
Dash salt + pepper

1. Blend everything together in a food processor until well combined
2. Add extra water to the mixture if it becomes too thick to blend 
3. Spoon into dish, refrigerate, and serve with crackers or pita bread

Tomorrow i'll post the recipe for these homemade 
gluten free pumpkin millet seed crackers :)

Great recipe Kelsey! I've never had spinach hummus before. I know, I need to get out more. Wanna come babysit my kiddies for about a year or so? Haha! :-D Thanks for sharing!

Chelsea said... [reply]

Wow girl, I'm so impressed that you made all that from scratch! This makes me want to finally break out my new food processor to make some of that hummus!

I don't know why I have not done this yet? I need to get on it now!

It looks like you like your hummus like me..not to smooth!
Making my own hummus has ruined me for store-bought. But I still buy it...because, you know, it IS still hummus after all.

omgsh Kelsey this looks deeelicious!! I can't WAIT for the cracker recipe!!

Unknown said... [reply]

I think making crackers is the better than store bought so I can't wait for this recipe!

Aylin @ GlowKitchen said... [reply]

I was going to ask before reaching the end: "what are those crackers?" Can't wait til you post that recipe. The only time I added spinach to guacamole was when I got my wisdom teeth out and couldn't chew my salads. Who knew I was onto something!

Mandi said... [reply]

Oh my gosh that sounds soo good! As soon as I run out of the garlic hummus I just bought, I am definitely making that.

I'm SO book-marking this recipe! We're making falafel patties tomorrow night, and there's nothing that goes better with falafel than hummus :) Looking forward to seeing the cracker recipe, too!

Ayla said... [reply]

Wow Kelsey that looks absolutely amazing. Next time I have somewhere to go I have to try this out. I never thought to mix two of my fav dips together to make one.

Jolene - EverydayFoodie said... [reply]

That is an easy recipe, and a great way to get some greens in!!!

Monet said... [reply]

Perfect timing. Ryan and I just bought a HUGE container of spinach, and we were trying to think of ways to use it. Hummus it is! Thanks for always making me smile with your words, photos and recipes. I hope that your Wednesday is full of joy!
