Roasted Pine Nut Hummus

Ingredients:

• 1 can artichoke hearts

• 1/2 cup cannellini beans (or garbanzo beans)

• 1/4 cup pine nuts

• 1/4 teaspoon cumin

• 3 Tbsp olive oil

• 1 Tbsp tahini

• salt and pepper to season

Directions:

  1. Drain and thoroughly rinse the artichoke hearts and the beans.

  2. Preheat your oven to 450°F and place artichoke hearts and pine nuts onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Place into the oven and roast for 10 minutes. Remember to safely shake the sheet a couple of times so the ingredients are cooked on all sides.

  3. Remove from oven and place the roasted artichokes and pine nuts into a food processor or blender with the beans, olive oil, cumin, tahini, salt and pepper.

  4. Pulse and blend the ingredients until you achieve a smooth consistency.

  5. Serve with raw or roasted vegetables, crackers, in salads, on veggie burgers or sandwiches.
