This recipe saw the debut of my new food processor...and let's just say I'm so glad I bought it! Last time I made hummus I tried to use my blender, which is so old and dull it did absolutely nothing. So I had to use a fork, and a potato masher, and a fork again...it took forever, and the hummus was still super lumpy. This time: nice and smooth :)
Chop 2 cups of fresh, raw, spinach leaves. Cook 1 15oz can of chick peas, add the chick peas to the spinach, and some of the juice. I put in about 10 tsp at first, and then added some more after I mixed it for awhile. Add more or less depending on how thick you want your hummus. Add about a tsp of minced garlic. Add seasonings to taste. I added garlic powder, onion powder, mustard powder, and salt.
(and for the record...I use garlic so much I can hardly taste or smell it anymore...)
chop everything up in the food processor until it's smooth. You might have to stir a couple of times.
makes almost 2 cups of hummus.
