Happy Friday Eve friends! How’s your week going? Thanks for the love on yesterday’s post, I know the momma guilt is something lots of us struggle with.
Today let’s talk snacks. Do you like artichokes? I have been on a bit of an artichoke kick recently, and have been trying to sneak them into everything. Which is how this hummus was born.
This has been a favorite snack over here. It is light and flavor and makes for a perfect healthy snack. I have been enjoying it with carrots and sesame pita chips.
Lemony Artichoke Hummus
- 1 can Chick peas, drained (save the liquid)
- 2 tablespoons Tahini
- 1 teaspoon (or one clove) minced garlic
- 1/3 cup Marinated artichokes hearts
- Juice of one lemon
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- If needed: 1-2 tablespoons reserved chick pea liquid
Directions: Place all ingredients except the olive oil in a food processor. Pulse a few times to start breaking down larger pieces, then continue to run food processor as you slowly add the olive oil. If the hummus seems a little dry, go ahead and add in reserved chick pea liquid, one tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached (additional olive oil may also be used).
Do you like artichokes, I have been wanting to grill some ever since seeing Kelli’s recipe for them.
