Spinach Hummus

DSC_0067

I love hummus! I saw a few recipes for spinach feta hummus and decided to give one a go. After adding everything else except the feta, I tasted the mix and decided it was completely delicious already and didn’t want to change anything, so instead of mixing a bunch of feta in, I just sprinkled some on top. The red pepper flakes in this gave it a great kick. This was an awesome snack to have right after getting home from work before making dinner!
