Halloween Spider on Spinach Artichoke Hummus

I’m a big fan of hummus. I always have it in the refrigerator. Sometimes I buy a carton of classic hummus and sometimes I make some with a variety of additions. Today let’s talk Spinach Artichoke Hummus. If you like spinach and artichoke dip, here’s a taste you’ll like. It’s a combination of spinach, artichoke and the taste of hummus.

Drain a can of chickpeas but reserve some liquid. Add olive oil to a pan and saute the spinach and garlic. Combine the spinach and chopped artichoke with blended chickpeas and you’re almost there.

For Halloween parties, you can try decorating the green spinach artichoke hummus with colorful peppers!

I saw this photo on Two Healthy Kitchens of Spooky Spider Halloween Dip, a cute, tasty, and healthy party appetizer for Halloween. Isn’t it adorable?







The directions said use any green hummus – ooh, spinach artichoke is the taste for me. The directions also said find a pepper with a side reminiscent of a spider. Hmm. I went through lots of peppers but none looked like a spider to me.  Therefore I tried to carve a spider body…..3 times I tried. I’m not crazy about the result but the plate is a colorful centerpiece for a snack table at a party.  I should really do a post on how many pins I try to recreate which don’t end up like the original. Is that just me?

  1. This is so cute. I pinned it on like 4 different boards to make sure I don’t lose it. My kids would love it. They probably won’t eat the spider part–lol b/c they’re picky, but they’d love it.

  2. I’d love to have somebody like you to decorate our home — love looking, but haven’t much talent and would rather go outside and play (or stay in and read or blog)…. I might be commenting on the wrong place… am losing my ipad battery so don’t want to scroll back to the top of the decorating post. We like huumuus a lot and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of this post.

  3. What a fun way to serve crudités for Halloween, and Spinach Artichoke Dip sounds so flavourful. Sharing later today on the Hearth and Soul Facebook page, Carol. Thank you for sharing, and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Hope you are having a great weekend!

  4. Hi Carol, Oooo I do like a bit of hummus, it wouldn’t be right not to considering I live in Greece and as much as I hate spiders, your final spider is mighty fine looking. This would make a good centerpiece at any Halloween get together… And rarely do any of my recreations turn out as they should!
