What’s better than the traditional cheesy spinach dip? My hummus spinach dip recipe of course! In less than 5 minutes of prep and a little loving in the oven, you’ll have a hot dip the entire family will love.
My entire family loves my spinach and artichoke dip. However, since my youngest son can’t have too much dairy, that recipe only gets made on occasion. Now, I nearly always make this hummus and spinach dip instead, since the white sharp cheddar cheese I purchase is nearly lactose free and he tolerates it well.
This dip is perfect for entertaining or just serving it as a snack. It comes together quickly and the oven does the rest. Check out how easy it is to make.
If you follow this blog, you know we are huge Sabra hummus fans. Their hummus is like my favorite coffee shop, delicious and consistent every time. I’m adventurous with my recipes but I prefer consistency in my ingredients. My biggest issue with this recipe is having enough hummus in my fridge to make it. If you follow my personal instagram account, you’d see that the kid is obsessed with it.
Some weeks I buy two tubs, one to use in a recipe (like these tostadas) or, for a night where minimal prep is required for dinner and I need an easy fix like this hummus chicken; and the other for my son to snack on just so I can get dinner prepped. I have to admit that a few times I’ve cut up a bunch of veggies, toasted some pitas, and gone to town in with this dip… for dinner. One family meal everyone enjoyed and no one complained. Perhaps you should try it one day!
Baked Hummus and Spinach Dip
A little twist on the traditional spinach dip that’s just as good and a lot lighter.
- Prep Time: 5 mins
- Cook Time: 25 mins
- Total Time: 30 mins
- Yield: 8
- 16 ounce container Sabra Hummus
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 1 cup shredded white cheddar
- 2 teaspoons creole seasoning or, italian seasoning
- Preheat oven to 375˚F.
- Chop spinach by hand on a cutting board into fine shreds.
- Combine hummus, spinach, half of the cheese, and seasoning is a small casserole dish (about 9×9 inches). Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cheese should be melted and hummus hot. Serve with pita wedges.
I tried this dip, I absolutely love the concept. However, the hummus, or perhaps the combination of the hummus and the white cheddar, made it very salty. I wonder if I used a different brand of hummus if the outcome would have been different?
it’s not the hummus it’s the sharp cheddar. If you use a colby or mozzarella, it’s milder. Enjoy!
I’d just make my own hummus and use that. It’s cheaper and you can control the ingredients! But otherwise – looks interesting!
The recipe looks yummy and I can’t wait to try it. I will choose a different brand of hummus though, an organic kind, to avoid GMO’s and non-organic ingredients.
Of course, you are free to choose the brands your purchase as the ingredients to any recipe.
Was curious what “flavor” hummus everyone used?
Christa, the beauty of this recipe is that you can use any flavored hummus. Recently I tried it with Sabra’s garlic hummus and OH MY! totally kicks it up a notch!
Do you use any particular flavor of hummus or just plain?

Yummy! I love the idea of ‘stretching’ my hummus to make other dips! So much healthier than just sour cream and cheese!! Can’t wait to try this!! Gonna bring it to my quilt group on Tuesday!:)
Let me know how your quilt group enjoyed it!
This looks amazing. Especially for entertaining. Looks so easy!
thank you! You should make it. Your boys will love it.
Ok…I’m making this ASAP! We are hummus addicts in our household, and I can tell we would devour this quickly!
let me know how your family enjoys this!
I just made this and it was great! Thank you for the recipe, it was simple and delicious!
Glad you liked it Kelli!
This looks so yummy! I typically avoid recipes like these because of the dairy but you have me intrigued. May I ask the name of the brand of cheese you use that is lactose free? It might be a game changer for me:) Thank you.
Kelly, Cabot cheese is 99% lactose free (in the post I said “nearly”). So are many sharp white cheddar cheeses.
This dip looks so incredibly good, Laura!
