Smooth hummus dip receives a touch of spring with the addition of artichokes and leeks. In no time, you can have a delicious appetizer that is perfect for spring.

This might look like ordinary hummus, but it’s packed with the extraordinary flavors of spring veggies. Leeks and artichokes are the guest stars in this homemade white bean dip. They’re sautéed with a bit of olive oil and can either be pulsed into the hummus so that their texture is still detectable or blended in to disperse their flavor. I opted for the latter option because I love super-smooth hummus, but you really can’t go wrong.
You’ll need just 7 ingredients (minus s + p) to whip up this hummus, and even with the added work of chopping and sautéing the veggies, you’ll still be in and out of the kitchen in under 30 minutes. Not too shabby for a dolled up classic.
