Green Goddess Avocado Hummus

Green goddess dressing is a classic California condiment featuring spinach, parsley, garlic, sour cream and anchovies. If you take out the fish and dairy, throw in some avocado, chickpeas and tahini, you’ll get a refreshingly green and vegan hummus you can serve at all your holiday functions and well into the new year.

  • 3 cups Baby spinach
  • 1 sm bunch Parsley, freshly chopped
  • 1 Avocado, peeled and diced
  • 2 tbs Tahini
  • 2 tbs Lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 cup Chickpeas, canned
  • 3 tbs Chickpea liquid or water
  • 1 cup Green peas, thawed from frozen or canned
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 2 tsp Cumin
  • ½ tsp Black pepper, freshly ground
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tbs Nutritional yeast

1. Add spinach, parsley, avocado, tahini and lemon juice into a food processor and blend until herbs are minced. Stop to scrape the sides if necessary.

2. Add chickpeas and green peas and process to obtain a puree.

3. Place the rest of the ingredients into the processor: garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, nutritional yeast and chickpea liquid. Blend until creamy and smooth green hummus is formed.

4. Adjust to taste, using more of the spices if wanted or adding more liquid for the hummus to become really smooth.

5. Once finished, transfer into a bowl and garnish with chickpeas, microgreens, lemon slices or other toppings of your choice.
