this hummus isn't as thick as others, but still quite good. i really love artichokes, so any reason to throw them in a recipe is usually good enough for me.
Recipe Notes: Ingredient amounts, including garlic can be adjusted to suit your own taste. Be careful with the hot sauce, a little bit adds a nice boost, but too much will overpower the flavors of the hummus. If you cook your own garbanzo beans rather than using canned, reserve a bit of the cooking liquid to thin the hummus in place of plain water. Although I have commited to Eating Down the Fridge this week, I did go out to dinner with friends last night because it had been planned before I joined EDF. Ill be extending the challenge for an extra day to make up for the dinner out. Interested in participating in the next round of Eating Down the Fridge?

I was in the mountains with my family for a few days and decided I would rather spend quality time away from the computer rather than worry about completing my weekly bread post. But I will be back Monday to tell you about making Peter Reinharts version of Challah!
