Much like yours
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.
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.Source(s): :)

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.

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: http://food52.com/recipes/22888-yotam-ottolenghi-s...
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.
