Hummus is so super healthy, boosted with protein, fibre and minerals. You can easily prepare it for a snack or as main dish. And the best think about it is, that you can prepare it in as many ways as you can imagine.

Today I will show you how to prepare creamy spinach hummus. Usually I cook a big pot of chickpeas or beans at the beginning of week and then I use it to prepare dinners in the following days. Once its cooked and it reached a room temperature, store it in a fridge, togehther with its acquafaba. (Here is a help for what acquafaba is) It can last also 3-4 days.
