This really-easy-to-make hummus tastes delicious and contains an extra dose of nutrition from a few leafy add-ins.

The hummus packs a punch of garlic, a kick of lemon, and roundhouse of fresh flavours.

Double the recipe to serve a party—or keep it all to yourself. This stuff is as good as it is good for you.

What you’ll need:

2 cups spinach
1 cup rocket
¼ cup coriander
2 spring onions, rough chopped
2 small garlic cloves
4 cups chickpeas, rinsed
1 cup olive oil
¼ cup lemon juice
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

How to make it:
1. In a food processor or blender, add the spinach, rocket, coriander, spring onions, garlic, and chickpeas. Pulse to chop. Then process, slowly adding the olive oil, until a creamy dip forms.
2. Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl and stir in the lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with whole wheat pita or toast. Makes 8 to 10 servings, as an appetizer.
