Here's an easy hummus recipe, aka Kichererbsen-Paste, that's a tasty, healthy dip. Surprisingly, it mixes great, even with German foods.
Having a party?
Serve this hummus (Arabian word for chickpeas) along with lots of fresh veggies and a variety of crackers.
Even though it's not German (it's origins are in the Middle East), it's fun to include international foods to add variety to a buffet table.
In fact, this is great if you have vegan friends coming over. They will love you for it! This version is extra tasty. It has pan-roasted onions and spinach. So-o-o healthy and quick.
Don't like spinach? Just omit it. Use more or less lemon; more or less garlic. You decide how you're going to make this hummus ... just the way you love.
Oma's Easy Hummus Recipe with Spinach
- 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 2 medium onions, chopped
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 clove garlic, chopped
- 1 - 2 cups fresh spinach, chopped (optional)
- ¼ cup tahini (optional)
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
- ¼ tsp salt and pepper
- In fry pan, slowly cook onions and garlic in olive oil until soft and slightly browned, about 5 minutes. Let cool.
- In food processor, process chickpeas, spinach, tahini (if using), lemon juice, and cooked onion mixture.
- Add 1 Tbsp water if necessary to get desired consistency.
- Season with salt and pepper.
Traditional hummus consists of chickpeas (garbanzo beans in Spanish) and tahini (sesame paste). You can omit the tahini if you wish. Hummus has so many different variations, it really all depends on what you like.

Oma's Christmas Stollen is the BEST. Why? Because it's always moist, has a wonderful flavor, and is super quick to make. And, I put Marzipan in it!!!
