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 Gloriously Green 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 Gloriously Green 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.

  • 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.)
