Knead to Cook - "Spinach Cumin Hummus"

I admit, I do love a good hummus and be to honest, I much prefer making it at home to purchasing the store-bought versions.  Homemade hummus is not only so easy, it is incredibly flavorful and you control the ingredients – so it’s healthier.

My oldest daughter and I are attending a party tonight and I wanted to bring an appetizer to share with our host.  This will be perfect to share although I may need to make another batch because I keep eating this one. Perks of styling food today.


1 can of low sodium chickpeas, drained
2 cups of fresh baby spinach (I used organic)
1/4 cup of tahini
3 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of low sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup of water
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 teaspoon of ground cumin
1 teaspoon of salt
ground pepper
Optional garnish ideas:  Drizzle olive oil, pine nuts or walnuts on top.


Add all of the ingredients to your food processor or Vitamix.  Pulse until you have the consistency that you wish to have.  Taste and adjust the seasonings.

Serve with crackers, veggies or pita chips.
