Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Kalamata Olive Hummus Tutorial

My 16 year old son LOVES Hummus.  He is quite the foodie, and calls himself a Hummus connoisseur.  I make several varieties and this one is his favorite to date:)

Here’s what you need

2 cups canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 lemon, juiced
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini paste
2 Garlic cloves
1/4-1/3 cup olive oil, plus more, for drizzling

1/2  cup kalamata olives, pitted

1 Tbs. Sriracha Sauce

Salt & Pepper to taste.

(Go a little easy on the salt, you will get some from the olives.)

Fresh pita, Naan, or crusty bread.

Place all the ingredients in a food processor except the olive oil.

Blend.

Slowly add the olive oil while food processor is on.

I like to spread this Hummus on warm crostini, topped with thinly sliced cucumber, tomato, a bit of fresh thyme (better to pull leaves off stem…left them on for the picture) and a light sprinkle of Rosemary Salt…mmm…

I love the color the olives add to the deliciousness.

SO EASY, RIGHT?!!  Hope you’ll try this easy recipe, so much better than store bought!
