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!

  • 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.

Tips

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.
