Lemony Artichoke Hummus

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

Ingredients:

  • 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).


Hope you enjoy this hummus as much as we have!  Let me know if you give it a try.

Do you like artichokes, I have been wanting to grill some ever since seeing Kelli’s recipe for them.

  1. This looks delightful. I could sit an eat an entire container of hummus in one sitting – I just love it. My usual goto is sun dried tomato. I’ve never tried artichoke, but it sounds incredible! I am definitely going to give it a try 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
