Hummus is super versatile and can be used in multiple ways. Today I am super excited to share this oil free Artichoke Hummus Dip with you! I think this recipe tastes amazing and it is made out of healthy, nourishing and wholesome ingredients. What more could you ask for?
I love hummus. However, I can get tired of store-bought hummus really quick. This is why I like to make my own hummus at home from time to time. And to be honest, homemade hummus does not have to be difficult or require a lot of time. With a few simple tips and a little bit of patience, you’ll be able to create a bomb tasting hummus in no time!
What ingredients to use?
- Chickpeas: Feel free to either use cooked chickpeas or canned chickpeas. Both of them will work. In my opinion, if you have the extra time to cook chickpeas from scratch, I’d recommend to go with this option, as the hummus will taste even better then.
- Artichokes: I used soaked artichokes for this recipe. This will help give the hummus a super delicious flavor.
- Tahini: I recommend using high quality and creamy tahini. Trust me you will definitely be able to taste the difference.
- Garlic Gloves: I prefer using garlic gloves over garlic powder. It provides more flavor.
- Aquafaba: Try using aquafaba (liquid water of chickpeas) instead of regular water. This will help to create an even fluffier texture.
- Salt and Pepper: To enhance the flavor.
How to make Hummus
- Blend the instructed ingredients in a food processor.
- I’d recommend blending the ingredients for quite a while in order to get a creamy consistency. I’d say for about 7-12 minutes. Always remember: The longer you blend, the fluffier and creamier the texture will turn out.
- Taste and season: Now ask yourself.. Does it need more salt and pep? More garlic? Then, adjust the flavors to your liking.
- Garnish: Before you serve it I recommend garnishing it. I garnished mine with cilantro and a dash of paprika powder! Delish!
How to serve this Artichoke Hummus Dip?
- Toast/Bread: I love hummus on toast! This is always a winner for me. Adding some leafy greens and sliced tomatoes will bring it to the next level!
- Pasta: You can even mix the hummus into your pasta with a tiny bit of water to create a creamy pasta sauce. It may sound weird at first, but trust me on this – it definitely tastes delicious!
- Sliced Veggies: In my opinion, nothing makes a better snack than dipping some sliced veggies into hummus. You can use cucumber, carrots or even bell pepper!
- Salad Dressing: You can always use hummus as a creamy salad dressing by mixing in a bit of water. So good, I promise!
