  • 1 large garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 (15.5-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • salt, to taste
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped olives (I like kalamata, but other varieties work, too)
For Serving:
  • extra virgin olive oil, optional
  • paprika, optional
  • chopped olives, optional
  • veggies, such as cucumbers, peppers, carrots, grape tomatoes, etc.
  • pita bread, pita chips, and/or crackers
  1. Pulse garlic clove in a food processor until minced.

  2. Scrape down sides of food processor, then add chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, and salt to garlic. Blend until totally smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Add olives to hummus; pulse just until combined. (Do not over-process; you should still be able to see small chunks of olive.)

  4. Season hummus to taste with additional salt. Transfer to a bowl, then drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with paprika, and top with additional chopped olives, if desired.

  5. Serve hummus with veggies, pita bread, pita chips, and/or crackers. Enjoy!
