Artichoke Hummus

So, I’m sitting in my apartment with some girls on a sunday afternoon and its 4 o’clock. Obviously you can’t eat dinner but snacking might mess up the big meal to come and most of the snacks I make are unhealthy. Then on top of that I didn’t go food shopping yet so I was very limited in what I had in my kitchen.

What I came up with turned out to be a hit and we all attacked the bowl like animals. This is a great dip/spread to make that involves canned goods, a food processor and in my case homemade chips made out of  sandwich thins because we had no more pita chips in the apartment. What also is so great about this dip is that there is no cheese and it is veggie friendly.. great for those vegetarians or non cheese eaters
