Given this tasty and ultra healthy Green Hummus was made specifically for a St Patrick’s Day work lunch, you can see how late my post is! Yes, a week, to be exact.

But, tardiness aside, this is a wonderfully quick and easy dish to make, not just for St Patrick’s Day but for any time you want a nutritious, delicious snack.

Thanks to I Quit for this nice little recipe. It looks like pesto but it is indeed hummus blended with leafy greens. You can use the recipe as is, or add your own favourite ingredients – I used spinach and added some coriander paste and a dash of paprika. A tablespoon of two of Greek yoghurt’s a nice addition too. Enjoy!
