Roasted Artichoke Hummus

I just wrote the wittiest, most interesting post about hummus vs. dip, tahini, and rainbow carrots. But alas, I accidentally deleted it, and pure wit like that only comes around once a day for me, so I’ll just let this recipe speak for itself! Have a great day folks! And see you next week with a new recipe 😀
