Chickpeas and olive oil

This is basically hummus stripped of everything but these two ingredients. You can always add them back in (1/4 sesame seeds, juice of 1/2 a lemon, and 1/2 clove garlic is where I would start), but there’s something about the simplicity of this version that I like. It tastes best served with toasted pitas, warm from the oven.

Chickpeas and olive oil

  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup olive oil, use something really nice here, like Olive Orchard
  • 1/2 t salt

Put chickpeas and salt into food processor. Pulse until roughly chopped. Drizzle in olive oil through the feed tube with the motor running until it’s nice and smooth. Taste and add salt if needed.
