Garlic Olive White Bean Hummus

Its Summer.  Its Hot.  Nobody likes to cook when it's hot.  Not even us. 

We decided to make a quick and easy dinner the other night that turned out fantastic and even better it literally took less than 10 minutes to prep, "cook", and sit down and eat.  The Olive Bar, at most every decent grocery stores, have a pretty good selection of olives and also of roasted garlic cloves.  We picked up some of those, a couple cans of white cannellini beans, a bunch of fresh vegetables and an organic roasted chicken and we had a meal.  Yes, it would have been best if we roasted the garlic and chicken ourselves, but we won't tell if you don't!

Serves: 4


  • 1 can (24 oz) Canallini Beans rinsed and drained
  • 2 TBSP Lemon Juice
  • 2 TBSP Tahini
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 head of Garlic roasted or 1/4 cup roasted Garlic Cloves
  • 1/2 cup of Green Olives (pitted makes it easier!)
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp of Himalyan Sea Salt
  • 3-4 TBSP EVOO (depending on how creamy you want it)


  1. Add Canallinis beans, Lemon Juice, Tahini, Cumin, Garlic, Green Olives, and Sea Salt in a Food Processor and blend.
  2. While blending pour in the EVOO to taste
  3. Enjoy with as many fresh vegetables you can find!
