Garlic Hummus with Kalamata Olive Spread


Hummus! I LOVE Hummus! I could eat Hummus everyday. The problem with Hummus from the store is if you look at the ingredients in most packaging, there are preservatives among other things that I personally don’t want to ingest into my body.

So finally I have come up with my recipe for homemade Hummus and I only got positive responses from my family and friends! So I am posting this delicious recipe for all of you.


4 garlic cloves

2 cans of chickpeas (organic) or fresh cooked chickpeas

1 tablespoon of salt

1/2 cup of Tahini

2 whole lemons (juiced)

Extra virgin olive oil

Kalamata olive spread (optional)

In a Blender ( I use a Vitamix, I suggest buying one, it is so worth it!) combine all the ingredients and blend until it is thick. Add some olive oil and and stir with a spatula, scraping sides if needed.

Start blending again and slowly add more olive oil until desired consistency. Add Kalamata olive spread or topping of choice….or just eat it plain!
