Garlic Hummus

Hummus is a tasty, healthy addition to any lunch or afternoon snack. Also, a great side dish to take to a gathering.  It’s easy to always have a fresh batch in the refrigerator with this quick and easy recipe.

Makes 4 cups


  • 1 Clove Fresh Garlic, minced
  • 15 oz. Can Chickpeas, drained (garbanzo beans)
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
  • ½ Teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • ¼ Cup More Than Olives Garlic Olive Oil, +more for drizzling
  • 1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Tahini
  • ⅛ Cup Hot Water
  • Toasted Sesame Seeds

In a small pot, add the canned chickpeas along with the liquid from the can. Add enough water to cover the chickpeas. Bring them to a simmer and continue to cook for 15 minutes. Drain the chickpeas and add them to a food processor. 

Also add to the food processor the garlic, lemon juice, cumin, More Than Olives Garlic Olive Oil, and sea salt. Process until smooth. 

Scrape down the processor bowl with a spatula and add the Tahini and water. Process again until completely combined and silky smooth. Taste and adjust the seasonings.

Spoon the hummus into a shallow serving bowl. Drizzle with a little More Than Olives Garlic Olive Oil and a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds. Serve with pita chips, pretzel chips, and/or fresh sliced veggies. 

If you like a bit of spice, substitute More Than Olives Jalapeno Olive Oil for the drizzle on the hummus.

More Than Olives

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
Jennifer Pearson

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
