Kale & Artichoke Hummus

Kale & Artichoke Hummus is a slight twist on Hungry Girl’s amazing Hummus Recipe , which I make as much as possible. Recently, I had some leftover kale I decided to throw that in the mix as well and see how it turned out.  A quick pulse of the ingredients in the food processor and I was left with a creamy and delicious Kale & Artichoke hummus. The kale adds great flavor and a hint of texture while the artichoke hearts make the hummus extra silky and delicious. You can use this versatile hummus as a sandwich spread, wrap filling, vegetable dip, or in anything else that needs a boost of flavor!
