3. You can add olive oil if needed, but the spinach and tahini should be enough.
I love hummus but am avoiding beans. This tastes pretty much exactly like hummus, only better because its chock full of spinach!

I have an overabundance of mountain spinach (red orick) and kale in my garden so I used those instead of regular spinach. Well, it turned out pretty good actually- I think it had too much lemon because of the bitterness of the kale, so next time I will sub some lemon juice for water if I make it like this again. Also, added a handful of cumin seeds and parsley. I wouldnt overeat it like I do chickpea hummus (which may be a good thing!?!) and it would be as a sandwich spread.


Plan to try ASAP...thanks and will post thoughts soon!


cant wait to try this!!


I loveeeeddd this recipe! I had my doubts as to how it would taste, to be truthful, but in the end it exceeded even store-bought standard hummus. Bravo!
