Black Olive Hummus

Ciara 1

"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!"

Wow. That was awful. It was so watery, I didn't even attempt to put olive oil in it. And, the flavor . . . I like olives, but this just did not taste good.

So inexpensive to make and better than store bought. You can add xtra oil or the olive liquids to taste. And 1 med clove of garlic is plenty. We just love it!
