"What's for Dinner Honey?" Spinach and Lemon Hummus


Hummus is a delicious and healthy snack full of protein- let's make it even healthier! Serve with cucumber slices, carrots, or pita chips in your Super Bowl Sunday spread.

Spinach and Lemon Hummus

1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 cloves garlic, peeled
3 tablespoon chopped chives
3 cups baby spinach leaves, washed and thoroughly drained
zest and juice of 2 small lemons
ΒΌ cup extra virgin olive oil
kosher salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste


Combine the chickpeas, garlic cloves, and chives in a food processor and pulse until roughly mixed.

Add the spinach, lemon zest and squeeze in the lemon juice and puree until smooth.

With the processor running, drizzle in the olive oil. Taste and season to your liking with salt and pepper.

Garnish with some crunchy salt, some herbs or celery leaves or some chopped chives.

The lemon in the recipe will help the hummus keep a vibrant color for a day or two if you store it in an air-tight container.
