Lemon Spinach Hummus
I got this recipe in my farm box along with the fruits and vegetables today and just had to try it. I’d say it’s a winner. You don’t even have to go out and buy tahini!
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 cloves garlic, peeled (I put a bit less because I don’t love it)
3 Tbsp chopped chives (I didn’t have any, but it turned out fine)
3 cups baby spinach leaves, washed and dried
zest and juice of 2 small lemons
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Combine the chickpeas, garlic and chives in food processor and pulse until roughly mmixed. Add the spinach, lemon zest and juice an puree until smooth.
With the processor running, drizzle in the olive oil. (Could use a little more or less depending on the texture you prefer.)
Taste and season with salt and pepper.
