A creamy, tasty and healthy chickpeas and baby spinach hummus which is just perfect to finish with some deep fried fava beans falafel.
I love classic hummus and often make it with falafel and whole wheat pita wraps along with some fresh juice to make a complete healthy meal. Luckily all the family loves this combination and doesn’t ask me more. I mean like sometimes if I make a dish either girls won’t like it or Husband would become fussy and then I have to make something special for the unsatisfied member of the family.
But as the whole family loves hummus, so I keep trying to introduce variations like beet hummus and this spinach hummus. So this time they loved the spinach hummus and we all had a nice filling and scrumptious evening snack with some deep fried traditional falafels. I could have made the falafel baked but seriously the fried ones taste so amazing that I don’t want to miss the exotic flavors.
If you are looking for a change from regular than this spinach hummus is definitely for you. There are endless versions and variations of hummus but frankly speaking for me, nothing beats the classic hummus. Anyways as the main ingredient in hummus is chickpeas, it surely fits the theme protein rich dishes for this month’s mega marathon.
