Kalamata White Bean Hummus

Since my blog is called Hummusapien, you’d think I’d have a handful of humbelievable hummus recipes.

That’s not exactly the case.

I always have hummus in the fridge–usually two.

My favorites are Trader Joe’s original, Tribe roasted garlic , Sabra spinach and artichoke , Whole Food’s black bean hummus and Whole Food’s Greek hummus.

Trader Joe’s original (the one with the red writing on the lid) is my go-to hummus.  It has the most amazing whipped texture unlike any other hummus around.  It’s priced right at $3.49 for a 16 oz tub and has half the fat of Sabra.  This is important because a 16 oz tub that technically has 16 servings really only has about 6 for me.

Close second: Tribe roasted garlic

This one is supremely creamy and garlicky, just how I like it.  Fabulous texture. I hardly ever shop at Giant Eagle, but I always find a $1.00 off coupon tucked into the top label so I’ve been getting it there.  With the coupon, it’s usually around $3.00.   I believe they have an organic brand now as well.

Third: Sabra spinach and artichoke

This hummus is super creamy and addicting.  The downside is that it’s on the expensive side and has 6 grams of fat per 2 tbsp which adds up super fast when you eat it all the time!

Hummus is extremely easy to make and I really don’t know why I don’t do it more often. It is definitely less expensive than buying it at the store. For today’s version, I didn’t use tahini  (ground sesame seed paste) since I know most people don’t  have it on hand in a pinch.  This hummus turned out super creamy and delicious with a nice salty bite from the kalamata olives.  Use fresh garlic cloves, not the kind from a jar– it really makes a huge difference in the flavor.  Feel free to leave out the olives if you’re an olive hater (just add a bit more salt).

Consuming weirdly large amounts of hummus is fine as long as you’re accompanying it with the best condiment known to man: Frank’s.  Twenty-three fluid ounces of Frank’s.

Kalamata White Bean Hummus

-makes about 1 1/2 cups

Ingredients:

  • 1 15 oz can cannelini beans
  • 6 pitted kalamata olives
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • heaping 1/4 tsp salt

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a food proccesor.
  2. Blend until smooth!

My favorite ways to eat hummus are with Wasa crackers , Triscuits, cucumbers or celery.  Sometimes your finger or a spoon is a the only vehicle you need.

Do we or do we not die over the cuteness of mini Triscuits?

Welp, I just found Ethan’s 1st birthday present
