Hummus is fantastic! It is so versatile and the perfect snack!
(Recipe and video below)
What I did in this simple recipe is I added some chopped artichokes (which I love!).
I also have a recipe on my blog where I added avocado to the hummus. That is fantastic also.
I made this with my Vitamix. I find it so easy this way.
You can use a food processor. I tend to like my hummus a bit lighter – and when I use my Vitamix I add a bit of water so it does make it lighter.
If you are cutting back on oil a bit, then feel free to use more water and less oil and add more artichokes.
I love eating hummus on veggie sticks, seedy crackers, as a salad dressing (I just thin it out) and even added to sautéed greens making a creamy delicious sauce.
Give it a try and let me know how you like it!

- Taste and adjust ingredients to taste
- Chop the artichokes and add

I usually don’t measure so when I had to making the video it took just a bit longer.
But when you get used to making this – no need to be exact with the measurements.
Health & Happiness!
