This is a delicious and unusual hummus recipe that comes courtesy of Linda McCartney (with a few changes). She notes that adding a few chopped fresh spinach leaves will enhance the green color.

This is one of the best dips I have ever had. Seriously! I am a huge fan of guacamole and hummus and this was a perfect blend of both. I used 2 small avocados and the juice of 1 whole small lemon. Absolutely delicious! I am taking this to a Thanksgiving dinner tonight for an appetizer, if I don't decide to keep it for myself! I am serving this with whole wheat tortilla chips. Made for my adopted chef for PAC 2011. Thanks flower7! :)

Absolutely fabulous! Added a little more lemon to brighten up the flavors. Also a pinch of cumin. Added a handful of fresh spinach together with the other ingredients and it pumped up the green color (and nutrients). The flavor was awesome! Also changed out the sour cream for thick Greek yogurt. (Less fat). Can I give this more than 5 stars?
