Artichoke Hummus

While browsing the pre-made items in the grocery store the other day my eye caught sight of artichoke hummus. Genius! I was literally 2 seconds away from putting it into my basket when I thought to myself “I wonder if I could make this at home?” A quick glance at the ingredients and I realized that I had just about everything that they used in their hummus hiding in my pantry and refrigerator. Score!

I have experienced with a few different kinds of hummus before. First there was the roasted garlic variety, then edamame and black bean and most recently white bean and rosemary. I don’t know why, but until I saw that package of it at the store, artichoke hummus never really crossed my mind. It was a nice twist. The artichoke added a nice flavor to the dish. I used frozen artichoke hearts because I like the taste of them better than canned. If you can’t find frozen canned should work.

    I blended some of this up recently in my vitamix blender and had a great afternoon snack.

    Looks great. I love anything with artichoke hearts in it. A freind of mine here makes a similar thing with eggplants. Yum!

    Sounds wonderful. I love artichokes and hummus so I cannot envision a world where this does not rock! Thanks for sharing. I’ll definitely be making this soon.

    You are so right to use frozen artichokes. They are indeed superior to anything but fresh. I’ve had artichoke dips that are probably a lot like this. I will be trying it.

    I’m a huge hummus fan and have tried many kinds too, but I always go back to my garlic hummus. I love artichokes though, so I will definitely give this a try.
