We love hummus at our house, and this recipe adds a very nice twist to your traditional hummus. I have adapted it slightly from ExtraVeganza by Laura Matthias. I actually met Laura when I was in photography school in Victoria, BC, and ended up photographing many of the recipes for her cookbook. I love how fresh this hummus tastes. It is a great way to incorporate extra greens into your diet. The wild orange essential oil adds a beautiful flavour as well.

Spinach Hummus with dōTERRA wild orange essential oil

Ingredients:

2-3 cloves garlic

14 oz can garbanzo beans, drained & rinsed

1/8 tsp ground cumin

5 tbsp olive oil (*I love Barrie Olive Oil – they carry the highest quality olive oil and balsamic)

3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 drops dōTERRA wild orange essential oil

2 tbsp tahini

1 tsp fine sea salt

1 cup fresh cilantro

1 cup fresh spinach, stems removed, chopped

2 green onions, chopped

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy and smooth. Scoop into a serving dish, garnish with fresh cilantro. Serve with toasted pita bread, baguette, or my favourite artisan sourdough bread by Homestead Artisan Bakery, crackers or vegetable sticks.
