spinach & artichoke hummus

Hummus is a classic appetizer and one of my go-to healthy snacks, but sometimes I want a flavor that goes beyond the basis chickpea and tahini combo. If you’re looking to add a little twist to your next hummus platter, then look no further than spinach artichoke hummus! This flavorful version of a traditional recipe combines the creamy goodness of hummus with the savory flavors of spinach and artichoke hearts. It’s a perfect dip for pita bread, veggies, or crackers!

Tips for Making Delicious Hummus

Here are some tips to follow for making this into that perfect party dish I know you want it to be:

  1. spinach and artichoke dipDrain the chickpeas!  This is an important tip.  More like a rule than a tip.  If you don’t it will be way to thin and watery.
  2. Use fresh lemon juice. This adds a lot of flavor to the dip!
  3. Add the spinach and artichokes into the processor!  I thought about waiting and mixing these in by hand at the end, and really struggled on deciding which route to go.  But allowing the food processor to blend them really integrated them into the hummus better and got them into smaller pieces than I ever could.  And did NOT obliterate them like I was scared it might.
  4. Make the day before!  I think this recipe tastes a lot better if you serve the day after you make it.  Sitting in the fridge overnight allows all of the flavors time to really meld together to make it extra yummy.  You can still definitely eat the night of if you are too excited to wait (I did that the first go around) and it will still be great!
