“The base hummus recipe is one of my favorite recipes from Mark Bittman's, How To Cook Everything. One day I realized that I didn't have enough olive oil so used the oil from a jar of marinated artichoke hearts. My husband loved it so the next time I added some artichoke as well as the oil to the recipe. We like this combination and hope others do as well! This is excellent with crostini.”
