Hummus with Kalamata Olives

This is a great dip to go with vegetables at parties. We make it all the time. Kalamata olives are not regular olives. They are AWESOME olives! Enjoy!

– Amber


  • 1 garlic
  • 2 cans garbanzo beans, drained
  • Juice from 1.5 lemons
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, about 1/2 cup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup kalamata olives
  • Parsley for garnish


1. In a food processor, process garlic until chopped fine.

2. Add beans, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and some oil in the food processor and blend.

3. Continue to add oil a little bit at a time, and process until smooth. Hummus needs to be processed quite a bit to get nice and creamy.

4. Add some kalamata olives and pulse just enough to break them into small pieces. Transfer mixture to a serving plate.

5. Sprinkle with parsley and olives, and serve with raw vegetable sticks.
