Pistachio Artichoke Hummus

Several weeks ago I met up with a friend I hadn’t seen in over eight years. I love when friends I haven’t seen in ages feels like it was just yesterday when I last saw them. We were catching up on the latest like no time had past. It was so great to catch up with her and I promised myself wouldn’t wait so long until I saw her again. Aside from the great company was the Pistachio Artichoke Hummus that I ordered. It was both interesting and full of flavor.  I made it my mission to recreate this amazing dish.

After several attempts and mistakes, I finally created a recipe I loved and felt similar yet unique to the original version I had at the restaurant.

With two kid’s who are obsessed with hummus, I made them my guinea pigs. M, being the most critical, LOVED it and demanded I make her a Pistachio Artichoke Hummus Sandwich for lunch. I was so happy I had to give myself a little pat on the back. She even asked for extra artichokes to put in her sandwich.

I hope you love this hummus as much as my family does 🙂

    It looks delicious and healthy. You make it really easy for me. Pistachio have many benifits. people should use them in their diet they are nutritious and quick to eat. People can consume it in many ways. They can prepare honey bars with pistachios, almonds, honey, and peanuts.
