If you love spinach dip and hummus you’ll go crazy for this Spinach Artichoke Hummus!!
I have a love of hummus… regular, garlic, red pepper, white bean… I’ve yet to meet a hummus that I don’t like. When I first started making it I was the only person in my house that liked it, which was fine with me.
But then they acquired a taste for it. Even my husband who I never thought would become a convert… he eats the stuff like crazy!! So now I just have to make more.
I mentioned it before that there’s a game we played on vacation last year called Super Fight- I got the power that everything I touch turns to hummus… I would totally dig that power… well maybe not everything I touch, but if I could turn it on and off and instant hummus… that would be kind of awesome!!
This recipe combines it with the tastiness of spinach and artichoke, always a winning combination, for an amazing dip that I could pretty much eat with a spoon ( I may have had a couple of spoon fulls while making this!)
You can serve it up with chips or veggies, my personal favorite is the Multigrain chips they have at Aldi… yum!!
Here’s what you’ll need-
5-6 oz bag Baby Spinach
1 – 12oz. Jar Marinated Artichoke Hearts
3- Cloves of Garlic
2- Cans Garbanzo Beans
2- Tbsp Olive Oil
First thing were going to do is roughly chop the spinach, and finely chop your garlic (unless you have a garlic press then you can use it, I highly recommend the one from pampered chef ) Then in a large skillet heat 1 Tbsp of your olive oil over medium heat. Add in your garlic and let it cook for a couple of minutes then add in your spinach. You only need to cook the spinach for about 2 minutes or until it just starts to wilt. Once it’s just softened remove the pan from the heat and set it aside.
Now drain your artichoke hearts and put them in the food processor. Process until finely chopped. Drain and add in your garbanzo beans. Blend them until they are also finely chopped and evenly mixed with your artichokes. Now add the spinach and blend until everything is well incorporated. You can add in your remaining tbsp of olive oil if the mixture seems to need a little more moisture. Taste and then add a little salt if needed.
That’s it! Now you’re ready to serve it up (or just eat it with a spoon!) Be prepared to make more, it will go fast!!
What is your favorite hummus? I’d love to hear what variations you love!
