When I was little, I remember my grandparents growing artichokes in large planters in their garden.  I was always fascinated with artichokes and being from California, it is part of your regular diet.  I would hunt for the small, baby artichokes in the plants, hoping to find some hidden away and watching them grow.  To this day I still think about those artichoke plants and being in California with my grandparents.  Making dishes like this Artichoke Lemon Hummus takes me right back to that backyard.

Tahini is a traditional ingredient in hummus.  It is a sesame seed paste, similar to nut butters.  You can typically find it in your ethnic or peanut butter section of the grocery store or you can use this affiliate link to get it online here.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 1 cups

Ingredients

Instructions

  • If you do not have pre-roasted garlic, use this shortcut. Put garlic cloves with the skin still on in a nonstick skillet and heat over medium low heat. Roasting the garlic will take approximately 40 minutes. Rotate the cloves every 10-15 minutes so that they are roasted on all sides. Set aside to cool.
  • When garlic is cool enough to handle, peel the skins off the cloves.
  • Add the garbanzo beans, garlic, lemon juice, salt, tahini, 3/4 cup artichoke hearts, and olive oil to food processor. Put the lid on and process until you reach your desired consistency, approximately 10-15 seconds. If the mixture is too thick, add water 1 Tbsp at a time and process briefly to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking.
  • When complete, use a spatula to put the hummus in a bowl. Mix in the remaining 1/4 cup chopped artichoke hearts.
  • Refrigerate for one hour and serve chilled with pita bread or assorted vegetables.

Notes

Learn how to make roasted garlic here!  You will want it in your refrigerator at all times 🙂
Order tahini online here!
You can use frozen artichokes here however make sure you defrost and drain them first as they will carry a lot of water in them, making the dip runny.
For a little heat, add some cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes when blending.

    • I use the jarred/canned kind that is packed in oil. You can use the frozen version however you want to make sure and thaw it to drain out the extra water before adding it to the hummus so that it is not too runny 🙂

  1. Sadly, I have never lived in a place where I could grow my own artichokes but I can imagine how lovely it would be to pluck one right from the plant. And how truly satisfying it must be to take that freshly picked artichoke and transform it into this beautiful hummus.
