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!

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.

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! Read More

There is no way that this is runny unless the olives and beans are not drained. I add the olive oil as I mix because I don't want to use that much olive oil and then I also add a little lemon juice for added moisture. A very good basic recipe. Read More
