Spinach Artichoke Hummus

Hurricanes always bring out my need to make something in the kitchen. I searched through my cabinets and found chick peas, tahini, olive oil, and artichoke hearts. Added some fresh spinach, garlic and lemon to mix and we got ourselves a delicious hummus!! Plus, it gave me another chance to use my Vitamix blender (love it!). Can't wait to dig into this later!















Spinach Artichoke Hummus
Serves 10

Ingredients:
1 can (15.5 ounces) chick peas, drained
1 can (8 ounces) artichoke hearts, drained
1 cup fresh baby spinach
1/4 cup olive oil
1 clove garlic, sliced in half
1 tablespoon tahini
1 half lemon
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Place chick peas, artichoke hearts, spinach, olive oil, garlic, and tahini in blender or food processor. Squeeze juice from lemon into the mixture. Pulse or blend on high speed until blended and smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

(For those counting, I estimated each serving to be about 2 tablespoons hummus and equal to 3 pt. pls)
