1 cup of chickpeas (or 1/2 can of chickpeas if you’re short on time)
1/2 a can of black olives
1-2 cloves of garlic depending on your spice level
1 tsp of salt
juice of 1 lemon
1/3 cup of tehina/tahini
2 Tbl olive oil
1-3 Tbl of water if needed

1. If you are using canned beans, make sure you rinse them under water. You’ll see a bunch of bubbles and that’s actually sodium leaving the beans! Most canned beans are packed with sodium so keep this in mind.
2. Using a food processor, or a blender, combine the chickpeas, black olives, garlic, and salt and pulse for about 20 seconds until fairly smooth, making sure you scrape the sides often (in between pulsing of course! Safety first please!)
3. Next add the lemon and tehina to the mix and pulse some more in order to incorporate the liquids in, pulse until smooth and until its your desired thickness
4. Drizzle in your olive oil and taste to make sure its balanced for you!
5. If your hummus is way too thick, but the flavor is strong enough, add a few tablespoons of water to thin it.
6. Remember tehina can seize up, so just pulse it again or whip it up.
