Creamy Hummus With Black Olives Recipe

Creamy Hummus With Black Olives Recipe

If you aren’t familiar with hummus, it is a traditional Middle Eastern dip that uses chickpeas as its base. Not only is it high in protein and fiber, it’s also naturally gluten free.  Hummus is delicious served with carrot sticks and bell pepper strips or toasted pita bread. If you’re looking for new lunch ideas- try spreading it inside of a pita and fill with your favorite fresh veggies.


Creamy Hummus with Black Olives Recipe


  • 1 16 oz. can of low sodium chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans)
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons of water
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 3.8 oz. can sliced black olives


  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
  2. Add them to a food processor and puree until smooth.
  3. Add the tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, and garlic and continue to puree.
  4. Add the desired amount of salt.
  5. Scrape the sides of the food processor and puree again. You may notice at this point that there are still some small chunks of chickpeas. Add the water one tablespoon at a time until you have reached a thick creamy texture. This may require you to puree for several minutes.
  6. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle the top of the hummus with the black olives just before serving.
