Hummus + Artichoke Dip

I have a couple of questions, do you love hummus? And have you ever made it? If the answer is yes to the first questions and a big negatory to the second question then lets you in the kitchen. I recently made homemade hummus for the first time and I got to wondering, “Why haven’t I done this ages ago?” Basically, don’t let ages go by before making yourself a batch of delicious homemade hummus. It is as easy as dumping several ingredients into our Cuisinart food processor and pulsing until the ingredients are nice and smooth. From start to finish it’s all done in about 10 minutes! No lie! So, read on and see just how easy this recipe is to make.

The base is chickpeas also known as garbanzo beans. Chickpeas are nutty in flavor and when pulsed create a very smooth dip. I have also read that removing the skin from the chickpeas the result is an even creamier version of hummus. But know this, taking the time to remove the skins is a bit time consuming, so there’s that.

Other ingredients include tahini which is a sesame seed based mixture. There’s also garlic, fresh lemon juice, sea salt and freshly ground black peppercorns. In our version, I thought it would nice to toss in a few marinated artichokes which only added to up the flavor ante. But if you don’t like artichokes just omit them. I promise not to be offended, much. Big smile. Nevermind me and my insecurities. Let’s make some yummy hummus!
