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.
Slowly add the olive oil while food processor is on.
Blend until smooth.
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!
