On the Job: Artichoke Hummus

Artichoke Hummus Back in the fall I did some recipe development and video shoots for Roland Foods. It was a great experience working for a big brand with such a diverse range of products – especially one whose sriracha plant is still alive and well. In the aftermath of my recipe testing, I had to clean out an entire section of my storage space to create room for a second pantry.

I’ve been slowly working my way through all the amazing cans and jars of specialty ingredients they sent me. One recipe that’s killed multiple edible birds with stones, and has been a nice go-to for last minute entertaining, is this easy artichoke hummus recipe.

tahini Artichoke Hummus Since I’m lazy, I often resort to canned or jarred artichoke hearts for my recipes, and this one was no exception. Artichokes are in season this time of year, but I know very few martyrs who would be willing to breakdown and cook a whole head just so it could be pureed to smithereens.

The artichoke in this hummus recipe gives the dense chickpeas a nice light body. And the tanginess of the canned hearts cuts the richness of the tahini in a way that feels rather fresh and springy, even if that illusion can be created year round. When I was testing this recipe for Roland I served it to a group of girlfriends and no one could quite put their finger on what was different about the hummus recipe. Just that it was so much better than usual.

Even if you don’t hoard 5 rows of canned goods in a cabinet next to your sweaters, these ingredients are cheap enough to pick up and keep around for the season (or beyond). So if you’re looking for an easy appetizer for Easter or just something to celebrate the rising temperature with a group of friends, this hummus recipe is for you.

Happy cooking!

  6. Crazy for hummus. Love artichokes — I’m all over this, Phoebe!

  7. Steph says:

    What an awesome take on hummus! We often cut our hummus with a bit of labneh or other plain yogurt and omit some of the tahini to add some tang and lighten it up a bit, but the artichokes sound like a really great idea!

  8. I could eat this by the spoonful Phoebe!
