Artichoke Hummus

Artichoke Hummus

Hummus is an all-time favorite. Chickpeas are an inflammatory food for many people because of the phytates and lectins, so this recipe uses the heartiness of artichokes in place of beans, peas, and seeds. Dip raw veggies into this hummus, put on salads, or use as a spread on a grain-free tortilla. You’ll be getting antimicrobial compounds from the lemon zest, garlic and cumin, and the artichoke is a source of quercetin, a natural antihistamine to support your immune function.

  • 1 clove garlic small
