Black Olive Hummus

Recipe by  

"My husband claims store-bought hummus is too gritty so he never liked it. But by adding extra liquids it makes it 'smooth like butta.' Now he's a hummus fan! One can of chickpeas makes so much that what used to be an expensive 'when-it's-on-sale' kind of treat is now a delicious snack I can have anytime!"

Directions

  1. Place garlic in food processor and pulse until garlic is minced. Add garbanzo beans; puree until chickpeas have broken down into a paste. Pour in liquid from olives, 1 tablespoon at a time; puree until fully incorporated, about 2 to 3 tablespoons liquid in total.
  2. Keep food processor running and slowly drizzle olive oil into hummus until smooth and desired consistency is reached. Add olives to the hummus and pulse 3 to 7 times until olives are chopped and evenly distributed.

Wow. That was awful. It was so watery, I didn't even attempt to put olive oil in it. And, the flavor . . . I like olives, but this just did not taste good.

So inexpensive to make and better than store bought. You can add xtra oil or the olive liquids to taste. And 1 med clove of garlic is plenty. We just love it!
