Artichoke hummus

Artichoke Hummus

Last updated: June 2021

This hummus uses lemony artichoke hearts instead of the standard chick peas, for a delicious new twist on an old favorite. For a real crowd-pleaser the next time you're entertaining, serve this up with a variety of fresh crunchy veggies.

Ingredients

  • 12 oz can artichoke hearts, reserve liquid
  • ½ cup Organic Tahini
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon if juicy)
  • 1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup reserved liquid from canned artichokes

Makes 6

Directions

  1. In a blender or food processor combine drained artichoke hearts, Tahini, fresh lemon juice, 1 garlic clove and 2 tablespoons of the reserved liquid from the canned artichokes.
  2. Blend to combine. Add in another 1-2 tablespoons of artichoke liquid until it reaches your desired consistency. Season to taste.
  3. Serve with fresh veggies for a tasty crunch with your savory dip.
  4. Tips/Notes: Tahini is simply sesame seed paste and has a mild "nutty" flavor. It is similar in consistency to natural peanut butter. It can be found on the Health Foods or Ethnic aisle of the supermarket.
