Spinach & Pepper Jack Hummus

I love hummus and I wanted to try making my own so I tried out this recipe. It is very tasty and makes a generous amount. You can always change it up depending on your particular taste.

What You Need

1 can of chickpeas (16 oz.) drained and rinsed

2 Tablespoons of tahini (ground sesame seeds)

2-3 cloves of fresh garlic, minced

lemon juice from 1/2 a lemon

2 cups of fresh, roughly chopped spinach

1/4 cup of shredded pepper jack cheese

2 tablespoons of olive oil

sea salt & pepper to taste

How To Prepare

1. Put chickpeas, garlic, tahini and lemon juice in a food processor. (Don’t forget to drain and rinse the chickpeas first.)

2. Pulse until fully combined and all chickpeas are broken up.

3. Add in spinach, salt, pepper, cheese, and olive oil. Pulse until smooth and creamy.

4. Take a taste test and add more salt, pepper or lemon juice if necessary.

Serve with pita chips and refrigerate any leftover hummus.

I like to eat this with Stacys multigrain pita chips that I purchase at my local grocery store.
