Hummus turned green!
This is a super easy variation of hummus that I really like – it is loaded with spinach and has a fresh lime taste. I made it quickly on this sunny Saturday morning heading to a kinder party and hoping that I will fool them kids into eating greens…well – parents were happy! And the kids ended up eating the healthy choco balls I brought along so I consider this a win-win for everybody 🙂
For a medium bowl of spinach hummus
½ jar of chickpeas
3 handfuls fresh spinach leaves, chopped
4 tbsp tahini
juice from half green lime (add a bit less, try, feel free to add more if you like it soury fresh)
1 tbsp flax seed oil
2 tbsp water from the chickpeas
¼-½ tsp salt (depends if your chickpeas are salted or not, just add to your taste)
pinch of pepper
garlic (I use just a little of the powdered garlic as my body doesn’t accept the fresh one; I’d add 1 medium clove here but again – follow your taste, it benefits from the strong, fresh taste of garlic or lime)
Blend all the ingredients et voila! Your good ol’hummus turns green and super fresh. It tastes awesome generously sprinkled with the garlic chives!
