HUMMUS IS MY GO-TO AFTERNOON SNACK

I love to serve this green goddess hummus recipe with sliced bell peppers, carrot sticks, and cherry tomatoes. It is also excellent as a spread on a wrap. Turkey wraps with green goddess hummus can make such a quick and nourishing lunch. This recipe is so simple to make at home.

DITCH ALL PRESERVATIVE-LADEN STORE-BOUGHT HUMMUS

There is no need to buy pre-made hummus at the store, loaded with preservatives, and who knows what else. You can totally make this green goddess hummus recipe perfectly at home in almost no time. This is the best hummus recipe. I believe the quality of the ingredients matters when it comes to our nutritional needs. By meal prepping this hummus recipe in advance, not only is it a time-saver, but you won’t be left wondering about the nutritional ingredients added in. I love to sneak in as many nutrient-dense foods as possible. Let’s give a shout-out to the star ingredients.

SPINACH

Spinach is an excellent source of vitamins A, K1, and C, and rich in iron.

Tip: To increase the absorption of iron, pair iron-rich foods with foods rich in vitamin C. An example when serving this recipe is to serve the green goddess hummus with sliced bell peppers. One bell pepper has 74 mg of vitamin C.

PARSLEY

Parsley is rich in vitamins A, C, and E. It helps fight water retention because it serves as a diuretic.

CHICKPEAS

Chickpeas are a legume that provides slow-releasing carbohydrates. So what does this mean for you? Slow-releasing carbohydrates slowly digest, so your blood sugar levels are stable. None of these “peaks and dips” in energy. Chickpeas have high fiber content, which not only helps improve digestion but also satiate your hunger.

Green Goddess Hummus Recipe


  • Author: Laura Villanueva
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 10 ounces 1x

Description

Green goddess hummus is incredibly easy to make right at home with only a few simple ingredients. It’s creamy, smooth and full of nutrients. 


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 can chickpeas (15-ounce) drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup parsley, rough chopped
  • 3 tablespoons green onions, rough chopped
  • 1/2 cup spinach
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp salt

OPTIONAL GARNISHES:

  • Sesame seeds
  • Pine nuts

Instructions

1. Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor or high-powered blender. You made need to tamper down the ingredients. If using a Vitamix, use the tamper to push down the hummus to create a smooth hummus. If using a regular blender, turn off and push the hummus mixture around and down so that the blades can create the creamier hummus.

2. If you find the hummus too thick and it won’t process easily, drizzle in one tablespoon of water. Scrape the hummus into a serving bowl. Top with optional pine nuts and sesame seeds.

3. Stir in the coconut milk. In a blender, blend the warm soup in small batches or use an immersion blender to puree the soup. Stir in the lime juice. Once blended, adjust the flavor with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Serve with an assortment of raw veggies. I love sliced bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and carrot sticks. Store leftover hummus in an airtight container for one week in the fridge.
