Author Notes:

Hummus is one of those recipes that is great to have in your pocket .. it's healthy & can be used in so many ways


Makes: 3 cups

  • 2 cups cooked or canned chickpeas, liquid reserved
  • 2 1/2 cups raw spinach, packed
  • 1 1/2 heads roasted garlic (** or 2 cloves garlic, minced)
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup olive oil + a little more to thin, if needed
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin, paprika, or sumac, or to taste, plus a sprinkling for garnish
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • juice of 1 lemon, plus more as needed
  1. Put the chickpeas in a food processor & pulse 5-10 times
  2. Add the the rest of the ingredients
  3. Purée for one or two minutes, adding cooking liquid or olive oil (a tablespoon at a time) until the mixture is to your desired smoothness.
  4. Taste and adjust the seasoning (I often find I like to add much more lemon juice). Serve drizzled with olive oil
  5. (** Garnish ideas .. chopped pine nuts, sliced black olives, sprinkling of either ground cumin or paprika, freshly chopped parsley leaves)
  6. Refrigerate for up to a couple days or freeze for months.
