Green Garbanzo Hummus #SundaySupper

So my obsession with Green Garbanzo continues with my second recipe and this time I’ve made a delicious Hummus!!All it needs is a few minutes in the microwave and its ready to be used. l love the texture and the lovely green color that just brightens up your party platter!It even ties with our spring theme this #SundaySupper!

I’ve combined these with garlic and some EVOO and you just can’t beat the flavors!The Garbanzos are a little dry and need some water to help puree them but the result is fantastic!It takes minutes to make and is the perfect alternative to the traditional humus and more healthier since its full of vitamins and fiber!Serve it with pita or tortilla chips and you have one easy appetizer dip that’s different and so tasty :)

  2. Green Garbanzo beans? I’ve never seen them. Now I need to look closer at the freezer section. Love, love the addition of the garlic and EVOO! I’d have a hard time sharing this one. :)

  7. Green Garbanzo Beans?! I never knew such a thing existed! Where have I been? I must find these! The hummus looks amazing and the perfect consistency!

  18. I’ve always been curious about green garbanzos. Are they green because they are not matured? The color is amazing and I prefer homemade hummus over any store-bought version. I will have to look out for these beans!

  20. Soni, I love this take on the traditional hummus. I’ve been wanting to make my own hummus for the longest time but can’t find any dried chickpeas (everyone online says making it with dried is better than the canned stuff so I’ve stayed away from the cans). I should just make your garbanzo version instead! Your photos are beautiful – I love that pop of green.

    Susan recently posted..Baked Eggs with Shaved Asparagus and Proscuitto #SundaySupperMy Profile

    • Thanks Susan!It tastes just like a regular chickpea hummus although its a bit more dry hence requires more liquid to puree!Its more healthier and prettier though :)

  31. Um…Yum! We eat a lot of hummus, and I will be giving this recipe a whirl today in my Vitamix! Family coming for lunch-and your green spring hummus will be a hit! Thanks!
