Vegan Artichoke Hummus #Veganuary

Creamy and delicious, this Artichoke Hummus served up with fresh veggies is the perfect start to your New Year.

Join me and others as we share Vegan recipes to help our readers with their New Year Resolutions......

One of the members of our blogging family, Valentina of The Baking Fairy, invited us to all share a vegan recipe in an event that she cleverly named #Veganuary.

I am not a vegan but I do try to offer up vegetarian options at least once a week on Meatless Mondays.  These often contain animal products though...butter, eggs, honey, etc.  I do have friends that are vegan so I am familiar with cooking vegan foods and it is not as difficult as people seem to believe.  I was one of those people for a long time.

Many of us make vegan food quite often without even realizing it.  Many pasta dishes are vegan, a lot of soup and salads are vegan and so are many bean and rice casseroles.  Whenever I have a party, I always try to make sure there are vegan options available.  

The recipe I'm sharing today is one of those that can be included at a party and all the guests will enjoy it.  The meat lovers won't even realize it is vegan.

I adapted this recipe from one found at Feed Me Phoebe.  I served it up with some fresh veggies at a New Years Eve Party while staying with friends in Arizona.

Let's take a look at what other Vegan Recipes are being shared today.......
