Artichoke Hummus

artichoke hummus

In my effort to increase the fiber in my diet – I made some hummus.  Hummus is not new to my diet but I very rarely make my own.  The last time I made it in my Magic Bullet.  That worked just fine but I really wanted creamier hummus.  Now I have the Nutribullet and a Vitamix so I can make it as creamy as I want it.  I chose to make it today instead of buying it because I wanted to be sure of the ingredients – my stomach is still trying to heal from a major illness.  Plus I wanted to try making artichoke hummus – I have never made that flavor.  Artichokes are very high in fiber and they are delicious.

 

Artichoke Hummus

1 can chickpeas

1 can artichoke

1/2 cup tahini

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon lemon juice

salt to taste

pepper to taste

 

This came out amazing.  I simply threw everything directly into the Vitamix and blended it all up – yeah that took about two seconds.  Then I was left with a bowl of creamy deliciousness.  I may really never buy hummus again!
