Lemon Artichoke Hummus

ncLemArtchkHumnm

I love hummus! I love artichokes! So it was obvious that I needed to make an artichoke-flavored hummus! I used a little more lemon juice in this than I usually do when making hummus, so it turned out to be a Lemon Artichoke flavor. I loosely based my recipe from one I saw at Allrecipes, using most of the same ingredients– just different amounts–to get the flavor and creamy consistency I wanted.

This is a great-tasting hummus and I love the artichoke and lemon flavors together–they give the hummus a nice punch! It does need a little salt, too, to enhance the flavor. If you are a hummus fan, you will have to try this one out!

LEMON ARTICHOKE HUMMUS by NancyC

Makes about 2 3/4 cups

  • 1 (15-ounce) can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained (or you can use cannellini beans)
  • (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained, rinsed, and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Optional: chopped fresh or dried parsley for garnish

Place all ingredients in a food processor or high-power blender. Blend until mixture is smooth and creamy. Spoon into a small bowl and serve with veggies, crackers, or pita bread or chips.

Let’s see now…here are all the other hummus flavors I’ve made so far: Traditional Hummus, Black Olive Hummus, Black Bean Hummus, Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus, and Pumpkin Hummus. I’m not sure which I like best–I don’t think I’ve had a hummus flavor I didn’t like! What’s your favorite kind of hummus?

    This sounds heavenly. I will make it. I used the dried garbanzo beans and soak them overnight. I have made pesto hummus which I love. Sometimes instead of basil I make the pesto with baby spinach and walnuts. Good. Will try your lemon artichoke hummus very soon. Thanks!

      I haven’t tried that yet Patty, but it sounds really good! I will have to add eggplant to my list to try! 🙂 I’ve made sun-dried tomato, which I really like, and I do want to try making roasted red pepper sometime!
