Let’s step out of our comfort food zone and create delicious recipes using Reese Artichokes. Okie Dokie, Artichoke!
I will show you an amazingly delicious and super easy recipe that you can make over and over again; for social gatherings, sporting events or just to have a delicious snack for yourself!
Now, doesn’t this hummus look and sound fabulous? I can’t even begin to tell you how much we loved the Artichoke and Cannellini Beans Hummus.
My family thought it was one of the best ones I have made so far, and I couldn’t agree more! That got me flattered and thrilled, so I made them more, which we enjoyed when we had our weekly movie night.
I believe that Reese Artichokes are so flavorful, and you can make amazing, quick, and delicious recipes all year round. Summer will be here soon so don’t limit yourself!
Think outside of the box and make something extraordinary for 4th of July, potlucks, or perhaps for family gatherings. We just love experimenting, so I am here to tell you that Reese Artichokes are a perfect addition to salads, dips or even burger topping.

If you like the taste of Pumpkin, then you going to love my Pumpkin Pie Hummus, easy and tasty dip. It feels like Thanksgiving was just yesterday. I could still taste our delicious Thanksgiving dinner. I was stuffed, but somehow I could eat more. Now, […]
Hey beautiful people, how’s going? I have today for ya, a delicious twist on guacamole. It’s creamy, yummy and perfect for parties… Any parties. What I love about hummus is the fact that we can make it so quick, and the outcome is always really tasty, and quite […]
Would you look at that hummus color? Every time I make it, I am amazed at how perfect it looks.
You already know that I love beets, and in combination with tahini, garlic, chickpeas, and lemon this makes an amazing dip. I will serve it even for Thanksgiving, along with some other delicious dips. You can prepare it a day before and refrigerate it.
I will share more hummus recipes in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned! Why buy it when you can make your own, even more, delicious than a store bought.
You can also prepare your own chickpeas just by soaking and then cooking them, but for this one, I used Organic chickpeas from the can.
However, in the next post, I will show you a delicious dip, another version of hummus that is made with chickpeas from scratch.
My kids loved this. I have told Daniel, my youngest one that this hummus is a “purple cheese”. He was more than happy to try it, but as soon as he gave me a thumbs up I told him it was made with beets.
Which he assumed, but I didn’t confirm. On the other note, my Nebs and I could NOT stop eating.
I didn’t have any crackers. So, I improvised by cutting tortillas into triangles and baking it for a couple of minutes until it became crunchy. Man, it was so good!
Serve it with some pita bread, or crackers and enjoy this delicious and healthy dip with your loved ones this winter season.
Hummus with Beets
- 3 smaller purple Beets or 1 large
- 1 cup 165g. Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans) /cooked
- 2 tbsp. 28g. Tahini
- 2-3 garlic cloves crushed and peeled
- 2-3 tbsp. 29-44 ml Olive Oil
- 3 tbsp. 44ml Water
- 1/2 tsp. 1g Allspice
- Juice of 1 lemon ripe
- Zest of 1 lemon
- Salt to taste
- Preheat oven to 450F (232C). Wash beets and cut both ends, then wrap in heavy-duty aluminum foil. Bake/roast beets for 45 minutes. Remove from the alum. Foil (allow foil to cool down for at least a couple of minutes, so it is easier to handle hot beets, and also beets will steam up). When you unwrap, just peel the skin. If you are using bigger beet, then slice it into quarters for easier blending.
- In your food processor or a blender, place all the ingredients listed above. Add salt to taste. I would start with about 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Blend/process, taste and see if you need to add more.
- Garnish: I reserved some of the beets and chickpeas. Simply just dice beets and place on top and add a couple of chickpeas, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with a bit of allspice. You can certainly add chopped parsley, toasted sesame seeds, etc.
Leftovers: Refrigerate for up to 3 days in airtight container. Tahini: Sesame Seed Paste. A bit thinner than Peanut butter consistency, but looks very much like peanut butter. Try to get Organic Tahini, or make it yourself. Let me know down in the comments if you would like that recipe. Also, what other hummuses would you like me to make? Carrots? Sweet and Savory? Black bean? Peas? Soybean? Allspice is optional, but I think it complements this dish perfectly.
I began to write this post in the middle of the week, and, of course, got distracted. I got distracted by making videos, testing recipes, and editing. Uploading a video took literally forever. It was definitely time for a simple lunch, and I had a […]
