Hungry, Hungry Artichoke Hummus -  9g Carbs, 3g Fiber, 1g Sugar

It's reeeeally good with baby carrots and red bell pepper strips!

1 cup canned artichoke hearts, drained
1/4 cup fat-free vegetable broth
1/4 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt (like Fage Total 0%)
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 tsp dried parsley flakes
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp paprika
1 15-oz can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
Optional garnish: additional parsley flakes and paprika

Place all ingredients except chickpeas and optional garnishes in a blender. Set aside.

Place chickpeas in a bowl and thoroughly mash with a potato masher or fork. (If you have a super-strong blender, feel free to skip this step.) Transfer to the blender. Puree until smooth, stopping and stirring if blending slows.

For best flavor, refrigerate hummus for several hours. Before serving, garnish with a sprinkle each of additional parsley flakes and paprika, if you like. Dip away!
