Artichoke Heart Hummus




Did I post this already?  I don't think I did.  It's a winner of a recipe though so I want to make sure I share this with y'all.

This is the most ridiculously easy and yummy dip.  I promise you will not miss the fat that comes from the store-bought versions.  And it's a fraction of the price to make it at home, too.  You can totally tailor the ingredients too.  Add more or less of anything.  And it takes under a minute.  Can't argue with that!

Artichoke Heart Hummus

Ingredients:
* 1 can of chickpeas, mostly drained
* 1 can of artichoke hearts, mostly drained
* 1 tsp. minced garlic
* 1 tbls. sesame oil
* 1-2 tbls. mustard (not the bright yellow kind though)
* 2-4 tbls. EVOO
* water
* salt to taste

Directions:
* Mostly drain chickpeas and artichoke hearts.  By mostly I mean, lightly drain the cans but leave a little bit of the liquid inside.  It's basically fat free flavor so keep a little bit of it to use instead of EVOO.
* Dump chickpeas, artichoke hearts, the remaining liquid, garlic, sesame oil and mustard into food processor or blender. 
* Pulse and add EVOO and water until it reaches your desired consistency.  Add salt to taste.

Enjoy with chips, pita bread, veggies or on a sandwich!
