Green Hummus

This is an easy, healthy dip that’s a snap to make for a party. Pair with pita, crudités, or chips if you like. Canned garbanzo beans, also called chickpeas, work well in this recipe- just rinse and drain before you add them to the food processor. For a smoother textured hummus, you can also slip the skins off of the garbanzo beans before processing.

2 cups spinach
1 cup arugula
1/4 cup cilantro
1/4 cup green onion, diced
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 cup olive oil
Salt and pepper
4 cups garbanzo beans


In the bowl of a food processor, combine spinach, arugula, cilantro, green onion, garlic cloves, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper. Close the top, and process until greens break down. Add garbanzo beans, and process until smooth and creamy. Adjust the seasoning before serving, if necessary.
