Spinach Hummus

Here's a delicious appetizer for your next gathering.

15 oz. chickpeas, drained
2 cups fresh baby spinach
1 cup fresh basil
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 teaspoon paprika

In a food processor fitted with a blade attachment, add chickpeas, spinach, basil, olive oil, water, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. Process until smooth, about 2 minutes.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl. If the hummus seems too thick, add additional water as necessary. Process again and taste for seasoning. Transfer to a bowl and garnish with paprika. Serve with fresh vegetables, pita chips, or crackers. Makes 1 1/2 cups.
