Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  3. Place cannellini beans, olive oil, water, tahini, salt, and cumin in the food processor and process until the hummus is smooth. If hummus is too thick, process 1 tablespoon reserved liquid from beans into the mixture. Add artichoke hearts and spinach to the hummus and process until smooth.
