I love hummus. Seriously… it’s love. I used to buy tons of different flavors from my fav guy at the farmers market. I would get roasted red pepper, cilantro and avocado, chipotle, lemon… you name it and I have tried it! I eat it constantly with celery and carrots when I am feeling super healthy, or when I need a little more substance I use pita chips or blue corn tortillas.
Anyways… I finally got around to getting all the ingredients needed to make my own hummus and let me tell you…. its seriously easier to make your own hummus that it is to buy it. Not to mention that you can make any different flavor combination in the whole wide world. Ok, so maybe some flavor combo’s are better left un-made, but still the possibilities are endless! I picked up fresh spinach from the farmers market recently so I decided to try my hand at a spinach feta. I added a healthy dose of feta cheese and what I ended up with was a bowl full of deliciousness…
- 2 cans garbanzo beans, drained
- 1 1/2 cup fresh spinach
- 8 oz, crumbled feta cheese
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 5 tbsp lemon juice
- 4 tbsp tahini
- 2 tbsp red pepper flakes
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tsp salt
- Combine the garbanzo beans, spinach, olive oil, lemon juice and tahini in a large food processor. Pulse until combined. Add the feta, red pepper flakes, garlic and salt. Pulse until combined. Taste and add salt or more red pepper flakes if desired.
