Spinach & Avocado Cannellini Bean Hummus

If hummus and guacamole mated and had a love child… this would be it:



This would be such a fun appetizer for a party — it’s nice and creamy from the avocado and a great way to sneak in some extra veggies :)


  • 1.5 C (one can) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 C fresh spinach
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Half a large ripe avocado
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Salt & pepper to taste


Toss it all in a food processor and whirl away! Enjoy as a dip with crackers or veggies, or as a spread on sandwiches (like with smoked salmon as shown here!):
