A collection of innovative hummus recipes, including an Italian Artichoke Hummus.

I suppose I should be flattered. My husband likes to spring dinner guests on me last minute. If I’m lucky, I get 36 hours notice. I suppose he has seen me pull it off before effortlessly. Of course, he’s usually at work and doesn’t see me frantically running around the house cleaning up and cooking and unpacking the groceries. He does get an earful of complaints from me, or as he tends to hear it, “Blah! Blah! Blah!”

Luckily, I usually wipe my scowl off right before my guests arrive, pleased that I did pull it off. Again. But don’t be surprised if you find a hummus dip greeting you when you walk in.

I love making hummus, of all varieties. More importantly, it’s just super easy to whip together. I’ve varied the beans (garbanzo, navy, black) and I’ve added extra ingredients, too (sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, pumpkin). They all turn out great.

This particular recipe is for Italian Artichoke Hummus. I puréed the artichoke hearts with the garbanzo beans and tahini. I ended up with a fluffy (yes FLUFFY) hummus that was amazing. Seasoned with lemon juice and your all-purpose Italian Seasoning and my appetizer was ready.

And your guests won’t realize that you didn’t stress over the hors d’oeuvres.

  1. Yes you should be flattered. All of your dishes looks so scrumptious that I can see why your husband wants to show you off like that. Everything looks amazing!

    I am in love with your hummus! Artichoke hummus would hit the spot right now. My man always springs things on me at the last minute – usually involving a potluck at work the next day. Ick. At least you can pull it off!

  3. Yes! I have been wanting to make hummus (I have never made it before). This is perfect to give me a few starting ideas. Thanks for sharing!
