  • Author: Betty
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


Units Scale


  • 2 cans (15 oz each) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  • 1/2 cup diced cucumber
  • 1/2 cup diced tomato
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley, mint, and oregano
  • 1/3 cup Kalamata olives, halved
  • 1/3 cup Castelvetrano olives, halved


  1. Make the hummus by dumping the rinsed chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, tahini, olive oil, and water into a blender or food processor. Blitz until the mixture is smooth. Add ¼ cup more water if needed to adjust consistency to your liking. Tip in the cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper and blitz again to mix. Taste it and adjust any seasonings.
  2. Prep the toppings by placing the cucumber and tomato in a colander. Add the salt and toss to combine. Allow the mixture to sit for 10-ish minutes and let excess moisture drain. Transfer the cucumbers and tomato to a bowl and toss with the chopped herbs.
  3. Assemble the dish by spreading the hummus onto a serving platter. Pile the cucumber mixture on one side of the hummus and top with the olives. Lightly drizzle the hummus with more olive oil if desired. Serve with soft pita bread or crispy pita chips.
