I decided to make my own hummus after buying a Hummus pre-made from the grocery store and it was really not good. So bland, and a little weird tasting. It really lacked the flavor I wanted. Since I am eating it with veggies I really want the flavor to pop and make it taste good to eat veggies. I also wanted to incorporate a veggie to get some of my daily dose of veggies, spinach made the most sense since it would blend well. The hot sauce really kicks up the flavor. Don’t worry though it doesn’t overpower it. I added 1 tablespoon to start and ended at 2 but could have gone up to 3, depending on your taste.
Ingredients: 1 TBSP Minced Garlic ~ 1 (15oz) can of Garbanzo/Chick Peas ~ 3 TBSP Tahini ~ 2 TBSP EVOO ~ 3 TBSP Lemon Juice ~ 1/2 cup spinach ~ 1/2 TSP Salt ~ 2-3 TBSP Hot Sauce
Directions: Pulse the first five ingredients in a food processor until smooth, approximately 2 minutes.
Season with the salt, and add in the hot sauce and spinach and pulse again until fully incorporated and smooth.
Serve with cucumber, peppers, celery or pita chips.

I made hummus this weekend too. I’m only making it at home from now on!
This is a good combo of flavors!
It is so worth it to make it at home and it’s pretty inexpensive. Thanks!
Yesss! I would totally eat something like this by the spoonful and enjoy every minute of it!
I was a little embarrassed how quickly I was eating it! Haha!

I love buffalo flavor and have been wanting to make my own hummus. My sister made a plain one for us and it was the best I’d ever tasted. Definitely pinning this and trying it asap!!
It is so much better homemade, and really is easy. Hope you like it.
I love hummus, yummy!
Stopping by from the linkup!
It is so nice to make it fresh. Hope you try it.

Hummus is one of my favorite snacks but never tried to make it from scratch. Looks delish!
It’s so easy too, just dump and blend away!

What an AWESOME flavor combination!!! I just love it!
Thanks! It was just as good for a snack today.

Jana @ Jana Says says
Hummus is so delicious. I love it!
That said, I’ve tried making my own and it always comes out horrible. I cannot get the flavor right. Makes me angry because I could eat buckets of it and it’s so expensive. I’d rather just make it at home.
Try this one, it really mixed easily and was so full of flavor.
adding spinach to hummus?! you are brilliant!! yummo. im the same, i eat it with veggies so it really needs to pop!
Thank you. Always nice to hide your veggies when you can! 😉
Yum. Hummus is so tasty.
It is so good and healthy too.
I do love a good hummus!! I am with you, when I eat it with veggies it has to have some flavor to make the veggies more enjoyable as a snack. This one sounds different and interesting!
Yes, veggies can be bland, so you want the hummus to add lots of flavor.
Lindsay @ Broke and Bougie says
as usual, drooling looking at your recipe!
Thank you so much! I’ve had some every day this week. 🙂
Sarita @ it's a girl's world says

Homemade is best, so you can add your own flavors.
