Artichoke Hummus Dip (Oil free)

Artichoke Hummus Dip with chickpeas, cilantro and wooden spoons on the side.

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

  1. Blend the instructed ingredients in a food processor.
  2. 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.
  3. Taste and season: Now ask yourself.. Does it need more salt and pep? More garlic? Then, adjust the flavors to your liking.
  4. 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!

Dreamy Vegan Wild Garlic Pesto

This picture shows the finished Dreamy Vegan Wild Garlic Pesto.

This Dreamy Vegan Wild Garlic Pesto is a great way to store any leftover wild garlic. It is made with wholesome ingredients and ready in about 10 minutes. I even collected the Wild Garlic myself in the Austrian woods. It is possible to find Wild Garlic in Europe as well some parts of Asian from the months of March to May. So I highly recommend heading out for a walk with your friends and family and collect these delicious and tasty greens from mother nature yourself if you can. Alternatively you can always look out for them at your local farmers market.

What to look out for while collecting Wild Garlic

Wild Garlic is pretty easy to spot. However, if you have never collected it yourself, make sure that you are aware how it looks like. It is often mixed up with other plants that look alike but are dangerously toxic. A great way to spot Wild Garlic is also by smell – Wild Garlic has a strong unique smell to it.

How to make Wild Garlic Pesto?

Making Wild Garlic Pesto or any other pesto is fairly easy. You will need a food processor in order to blend all the ingredients for the pesto together. Adding in some wild garlic, olive oil, fresh garlic, nuts, salt & pepper and blending everything together until the pesto is fairly smooth. However I always make sure that the ingredients are not too well blended as I like to have some leafy chunks in the pesto as well.

Where to use Wild Garlic Pesto?

Wild Garlic Pesto works well with a lot of different dishes. I personally love adding it to pasta and gnocchi. However, of course you can get a bit more creative with it as well. It would be a great addition to avocado toast, oven baked vegetables or even as a dip for white pita bread.
