HUMMUS <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:"> How is it that I had not discovered this until turning veg. I tried it for the first time last week and was like <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> . Sprouts Farmers Market has this AMAZING artichoke hummus that I have been scarfing down with carrot sticks all week. I just bought a 16 oz tub yesterday and it is already gone. I tried making my own but it was <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsdown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":down:"> probably because I used sesame oil since I couldn't find tahini. Anybody have a rockin' artichoke hummus dip recipe?

Hi! :)<br><br><br><br>
Yes, sesame oil and tahini are VERY different!!! You can find tahini at most stores, ask your grocer where they stock it.<br><br><br><br>
I don't have a recipe but i bet its not hard. Chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, dash of cumin/paprika, and some artichokes would probably be very good (salt and pepper to taste, too!) :)

I know it sounds wierd, but you can use peanut butter if you don't have tahini. It actually turns out tasting good (not like peanut butter hummus! Hee Hee!).

I found my Tahini at a local Indian grocery store. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> It's ok, but I'm thinking I would like a black bean version better... hmmm....

Here ya go. And it makes quite a bit too!<br><br><br><br>
Artichoke Hummus<br><br><br><br>
2 cups Cooked garbanzo beans<br><br>
1 cup Artichoke hearts well drained (either plain or marinated - if you use marinated, rinse them VERY well)<br><br>
3 - 6 cloves garlic<br><br>
Juice from 2 med. size Lemons<br><br>
2 Tbsp. Tahini or 1 Tbsp peanutbutter<br><br>
1/2 teaspoon Paprika (opt.)<br><br>
1/2 teaspoon Cumin<br><br>
1/2 teaspoon salt<br><br>
1/2 teaspoon White pepper (opt. but I really like it)<br><br>
Extra Virgin olive oil<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Directions:<br><br><br><br>
Combine all ingredients* but the oil in the bowl of a food processor, turn on, and slowly drizzle in olive oil as the ingredients are being processed until you get a creamy consistency.<br><br><br><br>
If you like the artichoke a bit "chunky" (like I do) coarsely chop it in the food processor and remove. Process the rest as directed and add artichokes back in.<br><br><br><br>
OMG...I have 23 hummus recipes (I just counted)!!

Mmmm, hummus. Sorry, no artichoke hummus here but some time try sauting (sic) carrots in garlic and olive oil... then take that and put it in the food processor with your beans, MORE garlic (if you want it), lemon juice, cumin, sea salt and tahini. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"><br><br><br><br>
oh and OT: bekajoi - <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"> from another sling mama!<br><br><br><br>
Back onT... I did have one time a totally awesome artichoke white bean dip. (Just sub your fav white bean ...uh... other than the garbazno, that is <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> instead, drop the tahini for this use, add some italian herbs and chow down!)
