Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups chickpeas drained*
  • 1 Tablespoon aquafaba liquid from a can of chickpeas
  • 3 artichoke hearts drained from a water-packed jar
  • ½ cup pitted kalamata olives drained
  • 1 - 2 cloves garlic depending on your preferences and the size of cloves, chopped
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons tahini
  • Pinch of salt
  • Drizzle extra virgin olive oil optional
  • Handful chives freshly chopped, optional
  • Sprinkling vegan feta cheese optional

Instructions

  • In a food processor or blender, blend the chickpeas, aquafaba, artichoke hearts, olives, garlic, lemon juice, and tahini. Stop to scrape down the sides once or twice, as needed. Taste for salt and add as needed.
  • Once the hummus is entirely smooth, move to a serving dish.
    If using, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, a handful of freshly chopped chives, and a sprinkling of feta cheese.
    Serve with crackers or crusty bread, or use it as a dip with carrot and celery sticks.

Notes

*Be sure to save the liquid from the can to use in the recipe (aquafaba).
This dip can be made in the food processor or blender. Since it has chunkier ingredients than your typical hummus (olives and artichoke hearts), you'll get a smoother spread by using the blender. However, either will work!
