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!
