I love hummus! I love artichokes! So it was obvious that I needed to make an artichoke-flavored hummus! I used a little more lemon juice in this than I usually do when making hummus, so it turned out to be a Lemon Artichoke flavor. I loosely based my recipe from one I saw at Allrecipes, using most of the same ingredients– just different amounts–to get the flavor and creamy consistency I wanted.
This is a great-tasting hummus and I love the artichoke and lemon flavors together–they give the hummus a nice punch! It does need a little salt, too, to enhance the flavor. If you are a hummus fan, you will have to try this one out!
