Spinach Pesto Hummus

Recently when I was in Florida visiting my family, I went to the Winter Park Farmer's Market. There was a vendor there selling assorted dips and salsas and one of them happened to be a spinach pesto hummus. When I tried it, it reminded me so much of saag. I loved it!


Spinach Pesto Hummus

1 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
10 oz spinach, blanched
1/4 cup parsley leaves
7-10 basil leaves
2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
1 teaspoon paprika
half a lemon, juiced
1/4 cup vegetable oil
salt and pepper, to taste

  • In a blender or food processor, add all of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Season to taste.
