Spinach and Feta Hummus

Posted by in Step-by-Step Recipes

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Spinach Feta Hummus. Guest post by Maria Lichty of Two Peas and Their Pod, recipe submitted by TK member Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking.

 
One of my all-time favorite snacks is hummus. I love eating it with pita bread, cut up vegetables, or pita chips. I love original hummus, but sometimes I like to mix things up. Roasted red pepper and cilantro lime hummus are a few of my favorites, but I am currently obsessed with this Spinach and Feta Hummus from TK member What’s Gaby Cooking. It is out of this world delicious! It is thick, creamy, and full of flavor. I also appreciate the bright green color.

If you’ve never made hummus at home, don’t be afraid. I promise this recipe is super simple, it only takes about five minutes to make. Spinach and Feta Hummus is perfect for parties or everyday eating. Spread it on a sandwich, use it as a dip, or grab a spoon. It is that good.

I made this last night to bring to work today and I was hesitant that it would only take 5 minutes to make. It took me about 10 minutes but only because my 2 year old was helping. It was a huge hit at work. Even my son ate some and loved it! Thanks for the great recipe.

amanda on 2.23.2011

i’m not a fan of the feta… any suggestions for a substitute? is it a texture thing or strictly taste? If it’s based on taste yum yum yum I am going to try so many different pairings! But, I hate the texture of feta…

andreaw on 2.22.2011

I made this this past week-end. It is very flavorful and a great color! I did not use all of the red pepper called for in the recipe, and it was plenty spicy. I think the amount called for is a typo.

Jenn Oates on 2.20.2011

Made this yesterday and it is as advertised, except the advice about thinning it a bit with the liquid from the beans is good. Also, it makes a huge amount, so if you only need enough for one tray of pita, you might want to halve it. Friends last night suggested frying it up to make falafel, might try that sometime too!

Everyone thought it was guac, though, and the looks on people’s faces when it wasn’t (who serves guac with pita?! :)) was priceless. :)

Tina on 2.19.2011

I made this today…is 2 TABLESPOONS of crushed red pepper correct? I made this using 1 T, and thought it was PLENTY spicy. I’m so glad that I didn’t add the 2nd tablespoon, or it would’ve been too hot for my kiddos to eat. I would actually even use less than that next time. Very good, though–and pretty too!

Jeanette on 2.18.2011

This looks so pretty and what a neat hummus variation.

Kara on 2.17.2011

By the way, if you don’t have tahini on hand, I wouldn’t worry too much about it. This recipe is perfect without — I don’t think you’ll miss it a bit. Maybe just add a tad more lemon juice. (I used juice of 2 1/2 lemons in my batch.)

Kara on 2.17.2011

Made this tonight and it was absolutely delicious! May have to do another batch this weekend!

This looks so tasty. I’m going to have to make this for our weekend snack.
Thanks for the recipe!

Sarah on 2.17.2011

Tried it, loved it! Added a few artichokes because I had them lying around. I’m a big homemade hummus fan, but haven’t been inspired to make any in a while. Will also be trying the cilantro lime recipe you mentioned.

Happy when not hungry on 2.17.2011

This looks so delicious and fresh! Love homemade hummus!

Athena on 2.17.2011

Awesome idea!!! I never thought of this. I’ve tried sun-dried tomatoes and cilantro, but not spinach. Sounds great! It’s so refreshing to have some healthy recipes that won’t put on a ton of pounds make it to the top list!

Claudia (Sue)Galloway on 2.16.2011

Looks good i will half to try this.

Cuddley Duddley on 2.16.2011

Wow I just thought this might make way good falafel just turn into patty fry or bake. Slice and add tomato more leafy green spinach put all of it in a pita yumm and viola the best ever falafel to. Ok I am drooling now I so gotta try it and see if it might work. Thank you again for this great idea.

Cuddley Duddley on 2.16.2011

This is a awesome idea. OMG now I can eat something yummy and good for me to your a genuis thank you.

ClaireS on 2.16.2011

My daughter (5) and I are DROOLING over this post!!!! If I had some feta cheese in the house, we’d be having this for dinner …. and letting the boys fend for themselves!!! What a wonderful recipe!

Oh — and MG, you should be able to find Tahini paste at your local large grocery store. My WalMart even carries it, but it really depends on where you live. Ask at Customer Service to see if they carry it at your grocery or gourmet store.

Linda in Alaska on 2.16.2011

I first met hummus while attending the University in Israel. This sounds like a good one.

MG on 2.16.2011

Hii… Can somebody tell me where to get tahini paste? Thanks!! Can´t wait to try it.
