Spinach Artichoke Heart Hummus

May 24th, 2009 | Posted by Alison Spath in Short or Sweet

Thanks to Running Towards a Dream I was inspired to make a new flavor of hummus I’ve never tried before.

With that I bring you: Spinach Artichoke Heart Hummus.

This. Rocked.


I threw a large handful of spinach in to the steamer and let it steam for about 5 minutes until it was soft and wilty.


While it was steaming, I put the following into the food processor:

1 can of garbanzo beans, drained but not rinsed

5 artichoke hearts from a can

1 Tbsp (+/-) Joyva Tahini

2 Tbsp (+/-) Canola oil

2 Tbsp minced garlic packed in water (about 6 cloves??)

A dash of salt

Then added the steamed spinach when it was done.

An delicious combo of flavors!  Thanks for the post Leah!

    Actually, it IS a beast! After I burned out my first one in a few months time (whoops!) I went back and bought a big heavy duty Cuisinart and it ROCKS. :)

    This is the second time I’ll be making this recipe and for the same people! My friend specifically requested this as an appetizer with crudite for Thanksgiving. It’s quite yummy. One thing I will recommend is to use a food processor with a strong motor like a Kitchenaid for super smooth results. It’s easy to make.
