Artichoke Hummus

So D and I have come to the conclusion if a restaurant makes a bad hummus, they really had to try.  We were in the grocery store, when I said, "I wonder if we could make artichoke hummus."  We found the recipe online while in the grocery store. It was the first one that came up.

It has a good kick (the garlic does that).  The artichoke flavor isn't really there, but the flavor is still good. I would make again.

Artichoke Hummus

Ingredients
1 can of chickpeas (14 oz.), drained with liquid set aside
1 can of artichoke hearts (14 oz) drained
2 tablespoons tahini
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove of garlic, crushed (used 3, didn't crush, just peeled and threw into the processor.)
2 tablespoon lemon juice
Added 1/4 tsp of Kosher Salt
Added 1/8 Cup Italian Parsley

Preparation
In a food processor, combine chickpeas, artichokes, and tahini. Blend. Slowly add olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice. Blend to a smooth consistency. If artichoke hummus is too thick, add 1 tablespoon of chickpea liquid at a time until desired consistency (I added in 1 tsp, not tbsp).
