Green with Spinach

This past Wednesday  we taunted you with three different kinds of hummus, and today, we bring you the first of those 3:

Spinach Hummus.

We got the idea when we were at Nates while cat-sitting (yes, you read that right!) for our coach a couple of weekends ago. This place is seriously amazing! For less than $10, you get a giant shishkabab of choice (we both chose chicken- oh.my.word. was it ever good!), a pile of rice, and your choice of salad (there were so many delicious options!). And just when you think that’s everything, they bring you over to the other side of the bar where they have 5 different hummus! Regular, roasted red pepper, spicy, dill and spinach. As soon as we ate the spinach hummus, we knew we had to re-make it at home!

This hummus is smooth, creamy and packed with flavour, not to mention spinach! Just another way to sneak some greens into your day without really noticing them. 🙂

Please don’t be afraid of the green colour! We promise that (other than the colour) you won’t even notice the spinach there! It does not taste spinach-y in the slightest. 🙂

It just tastes delicious.

  1. Wonderful website you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics
    discussed here? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can
    get advice from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Many thanks!

    • Hi Whitney! Sorry for the late reply, we aren’t aware of any message boards that talk about this kind of stuff (although we’re sure there are some!) But we do have many other blogs that we read and really enjoy! Healthful Pursuit is great for allergy-friendly recipes, Oh She Glows is a fantastic vegan blog, Edible Perspective always has incredible recipes with awesome photography, Peanut Butter Fingers is another one of our faves, and The Lean Green Bean is also fantastic, and sometimes even hosts online forums/discussions on a variety of topics. Hope this helps!
