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.



*  1 can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans)

* 1/4 cup tahini

* 1 – 2 tablespoons of lemon juice (juice from half a lemon)

* 1/2 cup of water

* 1/4 cup of olive oil

* 1 teaspoon salt

* 1 teaspoon dried basil

* 2 cups of raw spinach

And there you have it!


* You can add soy sauce, onion or garlic powder, or cayenne pepper for an added kick

* 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!
