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.

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…
