Green smoothies have been all the rage as of late, so why not a green hummus?! This spinach chickpea hummus is so unbelievably easy to make…and so unbelievably delicious! Classic hummus gets a nutrition boost with a few handfuls of crisp, mild spinach leaves resulting in a unique rendition of the classic recipe.
The wonderful thing about making your own hummus is that you can add a variety of different ingredients to personalize the flavour profile, such as adding cumin, spicy jalapeno, a dollop of Greek yogurt, tart sumac, or in this case, vitamin-packed spinach!
This variation of the traditional recipe has become a favourite in our home. In reality, this recipe was somewhat created by accident-I had some leftover spinach in the fridge and decided last minute (as I usually do when creating new recipes) to add it to the blender.
We actually now prefer this recipe to the traditional one! The mild flavour of the spinach adds a mild, earthy flavour, without overpowering the classic flavour of hummus and the addition of earthy cumin and sour sumac finish the hummus off with a burst of flavour.
This spinach chickpea hummus can be served in a variety of ways- with raw veggies, crackers, pita chips, or nachos. For more serving suggestions hop on over to my recipe for traditional Creamy Chickpea Hummus.
