Green Hummus

A vegan, gluten-free friend of mine (no bread or cheese — what is the point of life, then???) pointed me in the direction of this green hummus, inspired by this food blog, Namely Marly. Spinach and garbanzo beans in a vitamix. AMAZING. So easy to make, and so delicious to eat. A gold medal star for this recipe.

Ingredients:

And there you have it!

Notes:

* Serve with chips, crackers, as a spread on sandwiches, or as a dressing (thick) on a salad.

One serving as a snack or a dinner side, and you have your greens for the day! Hooray!
