Artichoke Dip Hummus

I've teamed up with ALOHA to share a healthy and tasty dish you'll want to bring to your next holiday party! ALOHA's mission is to help you feel healthier and happier by providing simple, high-quality products and inspiring content. They have an amazing recipe page with loads of healthy and delicious food. Be sure to check it out!
Now on to the dish...I think we all have the same thought process whenever we're asked to bring an appetizer to a party. Should I bring the same dish l always do or switch it up this time? In my opinion, there are so many amazing dishes to try so why not try as many as you possibly can?
This hummus is a healthy take on the oh so delicious creamy artichoke dip you usually see at every holiday party. And while I love the usual dip, I love this healthier take that still incorporates artichokes because we all know how hard it can be to not overeat during the holidays.

This hummus has such an addicting flavor and I couldn't help but go back for more after each bite!
And the best part is, you can bring a variety of "dippers" for your friends or family to try. From carrots to pita chips to crackers to broccoli. They would all taste amazing with this hummus!

Artichoke Dip Hummus
Adapted from AllRecipes
Serves: 6
1 1/2 tsp. garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas, drained and peeled (reserve juice)
1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 Tbsp. water
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1 (7.5 oz.) jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and quartered

1. Place garlic, basil and lemon juice in a food processor and pulse several times to mince basil leaves.
2. Add chickpeas, olive oil, water, salt, and cumin in the food processor and process until the hummus is smooth. If hummus is too thick, process 1 Tbsp. reserved liquid from chickpeas at a time into the mixture. Add artichoke hearts to the hummus and process until smooth.
3. Serve with carrots, tortilla chips, pita chips, crackers, etc.

*This recipe can easily be doubled to serve a larger crowd.
