Spinach Hummus Melts

WOW. What a weekend we've had. Somehow in one weekend we managed to pour beers at Pittsburgh Winter Beerfest, see The Avett Brothers & Old Crow Medicine Show, party at 90's night at the bar, hitch a ride home in a limo, and today we snuggled up on the couch with coffee and Harry Potter. Pure perfection! (More show photos on my Instagram!)

Our last few posts have been mighty wordy, so today we'll just share a quick and healthy recipe. These spinach hummus melts are super yummy and easy to make.

Here's what you need! (These amounts serve two!)
- 2 English muffins (white or wheat)
- Plain hummus
- 2 cups frozen spinach
- Garlic powder
- Shredded mozzarella cheese

Here's what you do!
- First, thaw your spinach and drain out as much water as you can. You can do this in a number of ways, but we just put 1 cup of spinach at a time into a coffee filter, run hot water over it, and squeeze the water through the coffee filter with our hands. Works like a charm!
- Separate and toast your english muffins to crisp them up a bit. Meanwhile turn on the broiler in your oven.

- Once the muffins are toasted, spread them with hummus (as much or as little as you want!) and top each with 1/4 of your spinach. Sprinkle with some garlic powder and mozzarella cheese and place them on a cookie sheet under your broiler.
- Broil until the cheese is brown and bubbly (only 2-3 minutes). Then eat!

I saw this recipe on Pinterest awhile ago and we almost always have these ingredients on hand, so it's a go-to meal around here! If you prefer to use fresh spinach, you can cook it on the stove in olive oil, but remember that it will cook down a lot so you might need to use a bunch. You could also use garlic hummus in place of plain hummus and garlic powder. There are lots of options with this meal!

Now I think it's time to get settled in for some Oscar's red carpet action. Happy snowy Sunday!
