spinach and feta hummus

Umm, yum, right??

And hummus is already healthful but if you add spinach??

(disregard the feta...but, really, feta is a very healthy cheese, if you think about it....) :)

No, but really, this is really, really good.

And, as always, hummus is super easy and delicious.
Easy appetizer and can be made in advance for parties.

Honestly, still not my favorite, but a close second!

Spinach and Feta Hummus
Makes about 2 cups or so.
2 cans garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cup fresh spinach leaves, cleaned and dried (for better results) OR if you are lazy, use a 1/3 package frozen, defrosted spinach (as shown, the lazy girl's kitchen)
8 ounces crumbled feta cheese
1/3 cup olive oil
5 tablespoons lemon juice
4 tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons kosher salt

Combine the garbanzo beans, spinach, olive oil, lemon juice and tahini in a large food processor. Pulse until combined. Add the feta, red pepper flakes, garlic and salt. Pulse until combined. Taste and add salt or more red pepper flakes if desired.
