Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bake chopped garlic in the preheated oven until softened, 5 to 7 minutes, to reduce bitterness. Transfer baked garlic to a food processor and add basil and lemon juice; pulse several times to mince basil leaves.

  • Place cannellini beans, olive oil, water, tahini, salt, and cumin in the food processor and process until the hummus is smooth. If hummus is too thick, process 1 tablespoon reserved liquid from beans into the mixture. Add artichoke hearts to the hummus and process until smooth.

Cook's Note:

This is best if refrigerated overnight before eating. Make it in advance whenever possible. This really helps the flavors meld together. Also, it is really tasty if you add about 1/3 jar sun-dried tomatoes (in oil).

This receipe is another reason to never buy store bought hummus again ! Very flavorful and easy to put together. I guess I didn't read the directions carefully because I just put everything together in the food processor and gave it a whirl . I used juice from 1/2 lemon and didn't have tahini but I learned a long time agao that peanut butter is a good substitute for tahini. This recipe also seems like it will lend itself to additions i.e., roasted red peppers or sun dried tomoates. It will be on my list of "go to" appetizers ! Read More

This is strange, because I usually hate hummus and artichokes, but I liked this. I ate it with a little spoon and no pitas. Although the reason why I only gave it three stars is because my wife and her best friend hated it and they eat hummus all the time. Practically on a daily basis. They requested that I don't make it for them again. Go figure? Read More

My name is Violet, and I am a hummus addict. Now that that's out of the way, this was great! My brother says it's the best hummus recipe yet (and I've made about fifty types - so many hummus variations, so little time). I only used 1 can of beans, 1 tsp dried basil, and 1/8 tsp salt, otherwise I kept everything else the same. Read More

Just made this for the first time ever and it is WONDERFUL! Used the reserved leftover juice from the beans instead of water- I can't believe how flavorful it is! Thank you! Read More

Very good recipe used 5 cloves of garlic which was a bit overpowering next time I would just stick to the three. It could also use another half can of artichoke hearts just for more of an artichoke flavor. Read More

I added just a touch of chili powder to this recipe -- just enough to give it a barely perceptible heat. Other than that followed recipe verbatim. Turned out awesome. I'm a novice hummus maker so I was mildly surprised at the recipe. Yum!! Read More

I made this just as instructed. This recipe is a winner! I think the artichokes make it amazing. I plan to bring it to a family dinner this weekend and can hardly wait to get their reaction. Thank you for a great recipe! Read More

yum! why buy hummus when you have this recipe? I only made 1/2 batch as I had 1/2 jar artichoke hearts to use up - which is how I found this recipe on ingredient search - wish I had a whole batch! I will be making this regularly. thank you! Read More
