Spinach Artichoke Hummus

Yummus hummus. Warn your party people. It looks like guacamole, but is has tons less fat yet is just as delicious. Tell your kids it's Incredible Hulk dip and set out the veggies. Spread it on a turkey sandwich. This dip makes most things more palatable!

I drain a can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas)

Then blend it up in a blender (mine is a Blendtec youtube Will It Blend) with

1/2 tsp minced garlic (yeah, I use the bottled, pull my chef tag),
1 tbs. of tahini (totally optional)
a dash of salt, pepper and
1 tablespoon of olive oil,
1/2 can of artichoke hearts (what am I to do with the rest of the can, recipezaar?)
a big handful of baby spinach (probably about 3/4 cup crammed)

Then I blend and blend and blend slowly adding a stream of water until it fluffs up and blends nicely.

Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, or wrapbread.

This recipe is dedicated to Ryan, whose family designates him the bountiful dipper, for whom crackers are merely the vessel--the method by which dip is to be savored.
