Roasted Garlic Spinach Hummus #TriscuitSnackoff

Spinach. It’s not just for salad anymore folks.
I am so excited to be teaming up with Triscuit Crackers and Martha Stewart to bring the perfect food combination into your life! I am always trying to bring more greens into our diet, especially Chickadee’s. III always talks about what a healthy baby she is since she eats mostly fruits and vegetables (we are branching out to meats too!). However, I must admit veggies are slightly more difficult to add to her diet because they aren’t as easy to wash and serve raw like fruit, and I being also using the best appetite suppressant to be able to keep the diet. For that reason I find myself sneaking veggies and greens into her diet through smoothies, muffins, and now HUMMUS!
And since Chickadee now eats a lot of what we eat, this roasted garlic spinach hummus is perfect for all of us. For her it’s usually by the spoonful or on a piece of whole wheat bread and for us grownups, it is perfect on Triscuit Crackers!
For this recipe I chose the Roasted Garlic Triscuit crackers because I thought they would go perfectly with the blend of ingredients in this homemade hummus recipe and after taking a bite, I think I made the right choice!
Here is the recipe.
Ingredients: 1 15oz can of drained & rinsed, low sodium, chickpeas (reserve the liquid from the chickpeas) | 1 cup of fresh organic spinach | 1 lemon | 2 cloves of garlic | 1/4 cup tahini (optional) | 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil | 1 tsp salt | 1 tsp pepper | 1 tsp of chili powder | 1 box of Roasted Garlic Triscuit crackers
01. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, roast 2 cloves of garlic for 15-20 minutes or until softened. Then peel off the papery skin and add to the food processor.
02. Combine garlic with drained and rinsed chickpeas, spinach, the juice of your lemon, olive oil, salt, pepper, and chili powder. Blend until smooth. You may need to add some of the reserved liquid from the chickpeas or water to help reach the smooth consistency you desire.
03. Transfer to your serving bowl and garnish with a few sprinkles of chili powder.
04. Serve with Roasted Garlic Triscuit crackers
Adding summer greens such as spinach (this recipe would be great with kale too) to your recipes is a great way to sneak in vitamins and nutrients. You can taste the spinach in the hummus recipe, but it is not at all overpowering and is actually quite nice!
