Artichoke Hummus

I had a jar of marinated artichokes sitting in my cupboard for a really long time so I figured I need to use it.  And since I love hummus I thought I'd give it a try and mix artichoke hearts with chickpeas.  The result was this delicious hummus . I garnished it with green olives and pine nuts and I loved it.  In fact if you love green olives I recommend garnishing this yummy appetizer with more green olives than what this recipe calls for.  The beauty of this hummus is that you can make it in no time and it is super easy to make.  Serve and eat it with sweet peppers, pita, crackers, toast lettuce, carrots or any veggies you can think of. 


1 can - chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained  

1/3 cup - chopped parsley 

3 tablespoons -  extra virgin olive oil + for garnish 

1/2 cup - marinated artichoke hearts (about 5-6)

1/2 lime, juiced or more if you like

salt to taste

dash of black pepper 

green olives, chopped, for garnish 

pine nuts for garnish 

dash of paprika for garnish 


In a food processor, add the chickpeas, parsley, olive oil, artichoke hearts, lime juice and black pepper.

Process until you get a nice puree consistency. Put the hummus in a serving bowl. With a spoon form a dent in the middle. Pour some olive oil in it and add the chopped green olives and pine nuts. Garnish with a dash of paprika. Enjoy!
