spinach and hummus melts

Yesterday I forgot to share my favorite recipes from last week, so today will do. I only have one to share because I wasn't very good at cooking or taking pictures, but it is a good one because it took less than 10 minutes to put together and it was very tasty.
Spinach Hummus Melts
recipe adapted from: {never} homemaker

Ingredients:
2 T hummus (Fountain of Health traditional is my favorite)
2 low calorie english muffins (I used Thomas 100 Calorie)
3-4 large handfuls organic spinach
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 slice of low calorie mozzarella cheese, torn into small pieces (I used Sargento thin slice)

Directions:
Turn on toaster oven broiler. Spread 1T of hummus on every 2 slices of english muffin (2T total on 4 slices). Saute (without oil) spinach and garlic. Add pepper to taste. Place sauteed spinach on top of each english muffin. Top with a small amount of mozzarella cheese. I tore one 40 calorie slice of mozzeralla and spread it out between the four muffins to save some calories. Broil for a few minutes, or until cheese starts to brown.

Serving size: 4 slices

Next time I would toast my muffins before broiling because they turned out a little soft. I'd also add even more spinach. It cooks down so much this was just enough to barely cover all four slices. Also, if you're not omitting things for a special diet you can add a little olive oil and salt to taste. I omitted both, but didn't miss them a bit!
