I was in Texas recently and saw lots of friends and family! It was SO fun! The first weekend in Texas was spend with about 7 of my Baylor girls at a lake in Texas. We always enjoy being together! It is amazing to think I have known these girls since the early eighties!
Gretchen is the big sister of my Baylor roommate. Gretchen is a great cook and brought a homemade artichoke hummus to our weekend. I came home from Texas and wanted to make it. I have made it threes times in the last week to take to different social gatherings.
I took the recipe from Gretchen and one from Feed Me Phoebe. I love it! This hummus has great texture and so much flavor. Serve with veggies and or pita chips.
Artichoke Hummus (adapted from Feed Me Phoebe)
1 14 oz can artichoke hearts, drained
1 15 oz can garbanzo beans, drained
1/2 cup tahini
3 Tbsp lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup water
1 tsp sea salt
3/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp red pepper (or more to taste)
Blend everything in a food processor. I don't have one so I used my Vitamix and it worked beautifully. Blend until you reach the desired consistency. Pour into a serving bowl. Top with a drizzle of olive oil, crushed red pepper and fresh or dried parsley. Chill until ready to serve. Enjoy with fresh veggies and pita chips.
