How this recipe for white bean and artichoke hummus came to be:
Ever since I had my first taste of hummus, I've been in love with the flavor of those blended little chickpeas.
Why not add some of my other favorite ingredients and come up with a mix that I could call my own?
Why this recipe works:
White bean and artichoke hummus is still buttery in flavor but has a slight zip to it that is like no other hummus I know of.
If you're anything like me, you won't be able to stop eating it!
The good news is, it's really healthy for you so you don't have to feel guilty when you indulge in half the bowl. 🙂
I like to eat mine with cut-up veggies but it's also fantastic with crackers and pretzels too!
Heck, grab a spoon because it's also great just on its own!
How long will this homemade hummus keep in the fridge?
As long as you store it in an airtight container, this deliciously easy-to-make homemade hummus will keep in the fridge for 7 - 10 days.
How much hummus will this recipe make?
As written, this recipe makes approximately 1½ cups.
Can the white beans or artichokes be left out of this recipe?
It's really your call, but I urge you to make this recipe as written.
However, if for whatever reason you'd like to make some changes, you can easily swap out the white beans, or even the artichokes, with additional chickpeas.
Should hummus be served chilled or at room temperature?
Personally, I feel the flavors of hummus are more pronounced when it's served at room temperature, but the choice is yours to make, and either way you can't go wrong.
How long does it take to make homemade hummus with white beans and artichokes?
This is the best part (besides the taste, of course). It will only take about 5 minutes of time, and then you'll be ready to snack away.
