  • Prep-time:
  • Makes 1½ cups

A handful of spinach gives this flavorful spread a lovely bright green hue. Serve it as a dip with carrots, celery, toasted pita triangles, or any finger food of your choosing, or spread it on a whole wheat tortilla and top with other fillings for a wrap.

Ingredients

  • 1 15-oz. can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 small clove garlic, peeled
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley leaves
  • ¼ cup sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

Instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor combine chickpeas, lime juice, garlic, and ⅓ cup water. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Add the remaining ingredients; cover and process just until combined.
  2. Chill, covered, until ready to serve.
