Artichoke Hummus


artichoke hummus from

I love pairing this creamy artichoke hummus with crunchy sliced cucumbers or baby carrots. This spread has a bright lemony flavor and is perfect for smearing on wraps (like my 3-ingredient flatbread).

I came up with this recipe after trying this parsnip hummus. I wanted to see what other veggies I could use to make a tasty hummus-like spread, and I can’t tell you how happy I am to have experimented with artichokes.

I suggest using frozen artichoke hearts for this spread – they’re convenient, and I think they taste much better than canned. You can find them in the freezer section of your grocery store (I get mine at Whole Foods).

This recipe is so simple. Roast artichoke hearts in the oven and then blend them with the rest of your ingredients in either a blender or a food processor.

This bean-free, artichoke hummus is delicious, and I’m sure that after you make this once, you’ll make this again.

    Delicious!! Garlic-y, Iemony – yum. I doubled the recipe and used 2 cans of 14.75 oz CaraMia artichoke hearts in water (since I had them on hand already) and skipped the roasting part because I thought maybe that was just for frozen – but I see from other comments that you do it for the flavor. I will try that next time!

    I love the artichoke hummus. I used garlic powder instead of fresh. Fresh uncooked doesn’t agree with my mouth. I found vacuum sealed artichokes at a market in Palm Beach Gardens. What a time saver! Will make this again a lot. The naan gave me a little trouble. Tasted good, but I seemed to prefer the hummus on something crunchier. Would love a great cracker recipe/

  3. Monica says

    Hi Ashley. Can canned artichoke hearts be used instead of frozen? If so, would you skip the roasting part?

  4. Kathy says

    This is fantastic! I was looking for Paleo/GF artichoke recipes since I rarely eat them. Well, I do now! Very easy and the roasting gives a complex flavor. Yum!

    I’ve always loved artichoke dip, but can no longer have it due to a dairy allergy. I made this with artichoke hearts that were preserved in oil. It was an absolute delight! Nice and creamy! Even my toddler gobbled it up. I hope you will share more hummus recipes in the future.

    Hello Ashley!
    I found your blog, specially this recipe and tried it today – finally!
    Since I am in Germany I don´t have ounces and cups, but I think I found the right amount of every ingredient.
    I bought artichoke hearts in a glass and natural fluid, didn´t roast them in the oven. It turned out delicious!!!
    Can´t wait for my husband to try it.
    May I ask why you roast them? There raw, right? Or is it also for some roasted flavour?

    Liebe Grüße,

    • My Heart Beets says

      Stefanie, glad you liked the hummus! I roasted the artichoke hearts because I figured they’d be easier to blend when soft and that the roasting would add some flavor. Hope you love any other recipes that you try!

    Hi Ashley,

    I have fresh artichokes from my CSA and I haven’t quite figured out what I want do with them. This recipe looks perfect! Do you have ideas on how to adapt the recipe to use fresh rather than frozen? Would you roast as usual or do I need to par-cook them in some way before proceeding? Thanks in advance!

    • Sarah says

      I love your new layout btw…reminds me of the LoveandLemons site, which is so accessible and easy to navigate! Well done 🙂

    • My Heart Beets says

      Hi Sarah! You can definitely use fresh artichoke hearts if you’d like! I’m lazy which is why I buy frozen 🙂 Just roast the raw artichoke hearts as written in the directions. If you try this let me know how it turns out!

      • Sarah says

        You are right about fresh artichokes being more work! I pushed through though and it turned out quite nice! My blender had trouble with the tougher leaves so maybe I didn’t peel the artichokes down far enough. The flavor was still excellent however. I may try roasted tahini next time- I’ve never used that in hummus so it will be an adventure 😉

        Looking forward to more website-design reveals!

    Hi Ashley, this recipe sounds so good! Could I sub cashew butter for the tahini? I don’t really care for tahini and I have cashew butter on hand. Thanks!

    • My Heart Beets says

      Thanks, Ellen! Tahini is what makes this taste like hummus but I’m sure an artichoke cashew spread will also be delicious! I’m curious to know how that combination turns out – please let me know if you try!

  9. AJ says

    Wow! This looks amazing! i have been wondering how to make a hummus without the chickpeas and this looks like a winner! Thanks for the recipes you post. I’ve been stuck in a rut on Paleo and find I’ve been cheating out of laziness more than I’d like to. Giving me back bread (paleo naan) and now with hummus I think I will have more snacking opportunities that I can handle when my garden starts putting out produce in overtime! Can’t wait to check out your other recipes too!

    so i went to the store today to get the ingredients for this and they don’t sell frozen artichoke hearts. i ended up going to target afterwards and they didn’t have them either!! where did you find yours? i am dying to make this hummus!! i have some canned artichoke hearts at home but they don’t have a lot of flavor to me and the leaves can be really stringy.

    • My Heart Beets says

      Hi Joanna! My Kroger carries frozen artichokes and I’ve heard Trader Joe’s carries them too. They can be hard to find in the frozen section, so search closely! I’d also ask customer service to make sure they have them in stock. They’re worth searching for – so much better than canned in my opinion. Let me know when you get a chance to make this hummus 🙂

      • joanna says

        i ended up finding frozen artichoke hearts at trader joes! i bought the last two bags haha i made it today and it is delicous. i had it with cucumber slices and also bought a jicama to make little dipper sticks. i’ve never tried jicama but i hear it is pretty good.

  11. Jineen says

    Have never liked chickpeas and so have been looking for alternative hummus recipes…and I LOVE artichokes!! But sadly, I don’t care for tahini either. 🙁 Any chance you have an idea of something I could sub?? 🙂

  12. Alejandra says

    This sounds amazing! I’m dying to try it. I’d love to top mine with some olive tapenade maybe. Thanks for the recipe!

  13. The Peace Patch says

    I found you through Rika’s blog…supercool virtual shower idea! I love this hummus combination…my favorite flavors and made with ingredients I always have! I so want this with pasta today. Many thanks for the recipe…cheers! 🙂

  14. Emma says

    Love artichokes and love tahini so this sounds like heaven! I’m highly considering getting a twister jar for my blendtec for super smooth hummus and thick dips.
    Nice to “meet” you through Ella’s celebrations 🙂

  15. rika@vm says

    Artichoke and tahini are both my favorite ingredients! I love creamy tahini-based dips! Thanks for joining Ella’s virtual baby shower event!

  16. Cara says

    Just making my rounds with my plate. Excuse me but can you look away so I can swoop a huge glob of this awesome hummus 🙂 xo!
