"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!"

  • Ready In

  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.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Store in a plastic container and keep refrigerated. Also try with green olives or both. Serve in a dip bowl with a drizzle of olive oil and a whole or sliced olive on top for garnish or snack on it right out of the container.

perfect match

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!

Yea it helps to drain the beans first if you add the liquid of them it's very watery and if you didn't add the black olives you didn't make it

This was not watery if made correctly, and imo really good.
