Spinach Hummus Dip

Feeling like hummus? Feeling like spinach dip? Not sure which way to turn? A marrying of two of my favorites, this dip can satiate your taste buds if you happen to be like me, trying to appease conflicting desires. What would be a typical spinach dip is kicked up a notch with the addition of garbanzo beans. Providing some of that hummus-like graininess, this dip is substantial but light-tasting, and the side to a tray of fresh vegetables and hearty crackers or bread.

This dip is super easy to throw together if you use a pre-made spinach dip powder. I found mine to be rather bland, so I ended up adding about 1/2 tablespoon dried dill and a sprinkle of both garlic and onion powder. I recommend allowing the flavors in your dip to meld a bit in the refrigerator before you make any significant spice additions.
The Stuff:
  • food processor or blender
The Edibles:
  • 1/2 c. frozen spinach, defrosted
  • 1 c. plain yogurt
  • 1/2 c. (4 oz.) light cream cheese
  • 1 c. garbanzo beans
  • 1 package spinach dip mix
The Making:
  1. Whir together all the ingredients in a food processor or blender.
