Fuck Yeah Hummus! Garlic Artichoke Edition

securedownload-3I love hummus. On World Vegan Day last year, I celebrated by having a hummus party, and I already have two hummus recipes on here: Sriracha Hummus and Jalapeno Hummus. Clearly, (spicy) hummus and I are involved.

Below is my latest hummus creation, featuring artichokes which are packed with vitamin C and the stress-relieving magnesium. Also, because the artichokes have so much liquid, you don’t need to add any oil, so this is a lower-fat recipe! Although I am partial to fat…



Garlic Artichoke Hummus
Serves 4

3 cups cooked chickpeas
3 tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon coriander
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Juice of 1 lemon
2 roasted cloves of garlic (preferable) or 1 clove raw garlic
1 14 oz can artichokes (I like Native Forest, which has no BPA) or 3 steamed artichokes

Step one:
Add all ingredients to food processor or high powered blender and let ‘er rip! Blend for 1 to 2 minutes, pulse a few times, scrape down sides, etc. Taste—add more salt, pepper or lemon to taste. If your hummus is thicker than you would like, add either 3 tablespoons of oil (one at a time) or ¼ cup of water. Add these slowly, while your machine is running, so that you don’t thin it down too much.

Step two:

Move hummus to bowl, sprinkle with paprika and slice up some crudites to serve. Or just shovel it into your mouth.
