Artichoke Lemon Hummus

Eileen’s Artichoke Lemon Hummus I made this recipe up on the fly one summer day when I was having friends over.  Many hummus recipes are too thick and pasty for me, almost so thick you couldn’t dip with them.  I wanted something a bit more refreshing for the summer.  This has been such a hit with my kids I make it almost all the time instead of regular hummus. Makes 20+ portions.  You can easily cut this in half if you have a smaller family… or don’t want to eat hummus for every meal! 😉 Two 15 oz can chick peas (garbanzo beans), drained 1 cup tahini (sesame paste) ½ cup olive oil 1 lemon, juiced 4 cloves garlic 1 can drained artichoke hearts– NOT the kind in oil, the canned kind 1 pinch red pepper flakes or Aleppo Pepper sea salt ground black pepper Put all in food processor.  This is a recipe that the amounts aren’t crucial; add more garbanzos, less artichokes, whatever.  Add more ground red pepper flakes to make it spicier. …
