White Bean and Artichoke Hummus

Homemade White Bean and Artichoke hummus is a creamy, buttery-tasting spread, with an ever so slight tang from artichokes. It’s the perfect dip for when you want sometime decedent tasting, but still healthy.

Artichoke and Chickpea Hummus Recipe

Ever since I had my first taste of hummus, I’ve been in love with the flavor of those blended little chickpeas.

As I was browsing the aisles of my local grocery store the other day, I had a hummus-brainstorm!

Why not add some of my other favorite ingredients and come up with a mix that I could call my own? 

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!


1/2 large lime, juiced
1 can garbanzo beans, drained (chickpeas)
1 can cannellini beans, drained
1 can artichoke hearts, drained (reserve the liquid)
2-3 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon minced shallots
2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon ground coriander
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste

-In a food processor, or high powered blender (I used a Vita-mix) add all the ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy.
-If the mixture seems a little too stiff for your liking, add some of the reserved artichoke liquid in increments until you come to the consistency you like.
-Serve with assorted cut-up veggies, crackers, pretzels, pita chips…you get the idea.

I truly hope you’ll try this hummus recipe and let me know what you think. I’d also love to know you stopped by, so don’t be shy about leaving me a comment to say hello!

Until we eat again,

After my BIL recovered from open heart surgery his Dr. told him to eat hummus in place of butter or margarine. It took him awhile to get used to it but now he enjoys it very much. This recipe wiill be a nice change-up for him so I'm sending it on to my sister! Thanks for being so innovative in the kitchen :)
