How to make artichoke hummus
When you’re in a hurry, you can throw this dish together in just a matter of minutes!

What to eat with this dish
If you ask me, there’s no wrong way to enjoy hummus. I’ll eat it straight out of the bowl!
That being said, it’s also delicious with slices of pita bread. Or, for something that goes with the Italian flavors, I like to serve it slathered on toasted slices of a whole-grain baguette.
Looking for something lower in carbs? Celery or raw cucumber slices are always a great idea. Some bell pepper slices would be delicious, too!
Finally, if I have any leftovers, I’ll use them as a spread on a sandwich or a wrap. Hummus is a nice alternative to mayonnaise that adds a tasty pop of flavor!
Hummus is a great dish to whip up whenever you have a moment. Then, you can keep it in the fridge to enjoy as a snack or a spread any time!
Leftovers can be stored covered in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
