Green Olive Hummus

12 11 2011
My good friend brought some of this over to share at a party. Oh my gosh! It was so delicious and even my kids, who do not like hummus, loved it. I think they what makes it so yummy was the wonderful green olive flavor and the subtle cumin and spice. The lack of tahini makes it lighter and less cloying. This is super simple so enjoy.

2 cups cooked garbanzo beans, either canned or dried beans soaked and cooked

2 cups green olives, pitted

1 tsp cumin, or more to taste

1 tsp ground red pepper flakes, or more to taste

2 tbsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic

lemon juice, to taste

Put all ingredients in a food processor or a high powered blender. Blend and adjust seasoning to taste.

I agree that the olives give it a fresh taste. I have not had olives in my humus before but i will definitely make this again.
