Hummus With Green Olives & Artichoke Hearts

Hummus With Green Olives & Artichoke Hearts

1 can chick peas (well rinsed under cold water & drained) 540ml
1/4 cup Olive oil plus maybe an extra 1/8 cup depending on how smooth you want the hummus to be.
2 tbsp. Tahini 
8 artichoke hearts quarters  (about 1 cup of marinated artichokes)
6 green olives - green olives sold pitted and stuffed with pimento (most often sold in jars) are Manzanilla olives
garlic cloves
1 tbsp. lime juice

1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup spring onions (green onions) I used fresh spring onions out of a garden in Kelowna..  absolutely delicious
cracked salt & pepper to taste

  1. Drain chick peas well. Rinse with cold water in a wire mesh sieve and drain well.
  2. Add all ingredients into the food processor.
  3. Processes until large chunks are gone. Scrape the sides of the processor bowl down. Taste and adjust the seasoning by adding salt and cracked pepper.
  4. Continue to process until the hummus is at the desired consistency. This hummus has a very creamy consistency. Store in the fridge for later use.
