Artichoke Hummus on Whole Grain Bread: A Perfect Lunch or Snack

If you’re not yet making your own hummus, it’s time.

Are you making your own hummus yet? I’ve got two fabulous recipes—garlicky artichoke and roasted red pepper—and even a short cooking video to show you just how simple it is. And takes literally five minutes.

If you haven’t yet tried it, perhaps you need a little food porn to inspire? No problem. Let me introduce you to this sexy little number: artichoke hummus slathered on whole grain bread and topped with juicy cherry tomatoes and crisp cucumbers, a drizzle of olive oil, crack of pepper, and sprinkle of sea salt to bring out the taste.

But I decided to share it with you today after this quick pic from yesterday’s afternoon snack got so much love on my Facebook page.

Whether people just needed a burst of spring colors and summery flavors in the middle of another New England snow storm, or just love hummus as much as I do, I can’t be sure.

But, man, was that ever tasty.

If you’re not yet making your own hummus, it’s time.
