    Greek hummus.

    Eatzi's Hummus


    1) Garbonzo Beans (chickpeas) 3 cans (15 oz. each)

    2) Paprika 1/4 tsp.

    3) Lemon Juice 1/4 cup

    4) Whole Peeled Garlic 1/8 cup

    5) Tahini Sesame Paste 1/4 cup

    6) Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 1/2 cups

    7) Kosher Salt 1 tbs.

    8) White Pepper 1/2 tsp.


    1) Chop garlic and set aside.

    2) Drain garbonzo beans and rinse with cold water

    3) Place all ingredients together in a food processor,

    blend for about 3 minutes, or until desired


    3) Be sure to scrape down the sides of the food

    processor to puree all the garbonzo beans.

    Pita Bread:

    Brush pita with olive oil, and toast in the oven until

    crisp. If desired...can be sprinkled on top

    or sesame seeds, parmesian cheese, roasted cumin, etc.

    Garlic is a great addition to hummus. Hummus is also an acquired taste to some because not everyone likes chickpeas... I would never add to my hummus. What brand did you use? But if you think it is way to bitter, add just a pinch of sugar to neutralize the taste. Only a little though or else it will ruin the hummus!

    Lay it out on a plate first. Press paper towels to get out as much olive juice as you can!!!!!

    Then add a pinch if sugar, salt, some minced garlic, and a pinch of baking soda. Stir really well. Leave in drug 1 hr.

    This will neutralize olives, replace with better flavor.

    Hi :)

    Yotam Ottolenghi is in my honest opinion the master of hummus. The simple technique of adding soda to the chickpeas makes an amazing product. Here's the recipe:

    Hope this helps :)

    I like to stir in a pinch of red cayenne pepper for spice, and some garlic powder for flavor. Black pepper and basil also work pretty well. :)

    It's not hummus if it's made with olives. That's more like a tapenade.
