Spinach hummus … حمص بالسبانخ


This a silky creamy hummus and  adding spinach to it, gives it a nice vibrant hue and a ton of nutrients. It truly tastes like the classic hummus, but it’s way more fun. 


  • 2 cups whole chickpeas (garbanzo beans) cooked and drained from water
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves washed
  • 4 tbs tahini
  • Juice of 1 1/2  freshly squeezed lemon
  • 1 garlic clove mashed
  • 1/2 tsp salt, plus more to taste
  • Water as needed
  • Olive oil for topping


  1. Add everything but the the chickpeas to the pitcher of a blender or food processor. Pulse, until all ingredients turned into a smooth paste.
  2. Add the chick peas and water as needed to get things moving, until the hummus is completely smooth.
  3. Taste and add additional salt if desired.
  4. Transfer into  a serving dish and drizzle with olive oil.
  5. Serve with pita bread
