Spinach Hummus is a healthy, vegan and delicious dip. It is made of chickpeas, raw baby spinach leaves, tahini paste, lemon juice, Greek yogurt, garlic and olive oil. It is a perfect dip for brunch, summer barbecues, potluck parties or family gathering. Bright, smooth and creamy hummus in 5 minutes. Serve it with pitta bread, veggies or grilled meat.
Spinach Hummus is my twist on the classic hummus that we eat every day in the Middle East.
There are so many dips in the supermarkets nowadays and some of them are really good. Unfortunately, I can’t say this about hummus. Usually it is blank or too thick. Believe me, nothing can beat homemade hummus in sense of flavors and creaminess. And the best of all, hummus is so versatile, I like to experiment with ingredients and this is how Spinach Hummus, Red pepper Hummus or Avocado Hummus were created. I still have Beetroot Hummus in my bucket list. I almost always have the hummus bar at any party or friends gathering. Why should you have it too?
- Hummus is vegan safe.
- Budget friendly.
- Easy to make.
- High in fiber and healthy fats.
- It looks impressive.
It will be a game changer!
How to Make Hummus
You can make hummus, using canned chickpeas or dried ones.
Using Dried Chickpeas: If you plan to cook chickpeas on the stove, you need to soak them. Soak ½ cup of dried chickpeas in cold water overnight. Ratio: 1:3. So ½ cup of dried chickpeas will make about 1 ½ cup of cooked chickpeas or 1 of cup dried chickpeas = 3 cups of cooked ones.
There are 3 methods to cook the chickpeas.
- The fastest method and my favourite one is to cook chickpeas in an Instant Pot/ Pressure cooker. It takes about 40-60 minutes.
- Simmer the soaked chickpeas for 3-4 hours on the stove.
- Cook them in a slow cooker 4 hours on HIGH or 8 hours on LOW.
Once the chickpeas are cooked, place all the ingredients for hummus in a food processor and blitz to a smooth paste.
Decorate with toasted almonds, red chili paste, parsley and black sesame seeds. It is that easy!
How to Serve Hummus
Serve it with pita bread, kuboos bread, veggies or grilled meat and always keep olive oil on the table to drizzle hummus.
