Green Olive Hummus



Who doesn’t love a good hummus?  I’m always looking for interesting hummus combinations.  Although I love roasted red pepper hummus and regular hummus, it is fun to find new tastes.

When I found myself with an abundance of green olives from Friday’s dirty martini making, I needed to find something to do with all the olives.

I found this recipe from Florian over at Contentedness Cooking and changed it up a bit with what I had on hand.  You can find his original recipe here.

Green Olive Hummus


9 oz Spanish olives, pitted

7 oz Spanish olives with pimentos

15 oz can chickpeas

1 red pepper, roasted

3 TBS tahini

1/2 cup water

1/4 tsp salt

6 cloves garlic, roasted


Transfer all ingredients to a food processor and process until creamy.

    I love hummus and can’t say I’ve every had one like this! My girls love olives and I’ve been eating green lately just because of the salt craving I think. I’m definitely going to run this one by them! Thank you for linking up with us for Meatless Monday!
