Spinach Hummus

If green smoothies can be all the rage, then why not green hummus?! Okay, so one is sweet and the other is savory. One is a drink and the other is a dip. But one thing they do have in common? You can’t taste the spinach! The spinach does, however, add a nice verdant hue and a ton of nutrients. Whether smoothie or dip, it’s a worthy addition.

This Spinach Hummus recipe tastes like classic hummus, but it boasts a boost of nutrients - and a prettier color too.

Green is my favorite color, so I’m especially down with this Spinach Hummus recipe. It truly tastes like the unparalleled classic hummus, but it’s way more fun.

I like it with rice crackers, pita chips, or red bell peppers. Hummus also makes a fine substitute for cheese in grilled cheese sandwiches (try it!) I’ve been eating so much hummus lately, in fact, that I’ve dreamed up a name for a new blog: HummusIsMyButtercream.com. Yes? No? Hummus is just, just, so freaking spatula-licking good, you know?

This Spinach Hummus recipe tastes like classic hummus, but it boasts a boost of nutrients - and a pretty color too.

Proof positive: It actually is easy being green.

Spinach Hummus

Classic hummus goes deliciously green with a few handfuls of spinach thrown into the mix.


  • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans) drained, but reserve the liquid
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin (optional)
  • Olive oil and paprika for topping, if desired.


  1. Add everything but the liquid from the chickpeas to the pitcher of a blender or food processor. Pulse, adding the bean liquid as needed to get things moving, until the hummus is completely smooth.
  2. Taste and add additional salt if desired.
  3. Scoop into a serving dish and drizzle with olive oil and paprika if desired.
