Scallion and Olive Hummus

Serve this delicious hummus with wedges of warm whole-grain pita bread, whole-grain crackers, or fresh veggies.


  • 16 ounce can garbanzo beans
  • 1/4 cup sesame tahini
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons crushed garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup (packed) chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup sliced scallions
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped black olives


Drain the beans, reserving 2 tablespoons of the liquid. Place the beans, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, pepper and 1 tablespoon of the reserved liquid in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth.


Add the parsley and scallions; process until finely chopped. Add the olives and process until the olives are finely chopped. Add a little more of the reserved liquid if the mixture seems too thick.

Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
