5 Minutes Mediterranean Hummus

5 Minute Mediterranean Hummus – Growing up in rural Ontario, my opportunities to sample a variety of culinary options were incredibly limited – I was a meat and potatoes country girl all the way.  The first time I tried hummus was when I went away to University.  I think I almost died and went to heaven at my first experience with hummus – so rich, creamy and flavourful. I’m pretty sure that’s all I ate for that entire summer. Then I went to Greece about 10 years ago and had the fortune to sample the real authentic stuff. Oh how I love Mediterranean food!

Tonight I was thinking about my love for hummus when it occurred to me… why not add some of my other favourite flavours to make the ultimate tasty dish. I ran to my kitchen and whipped out whatever ingredients I could find in the fridge and got to work. When I was done and had my first taste, I knew this recipe was a keeper.

  • 1/2  a can of chick peas (you can add a bit more if you’d like)
  • 8-12 olives (I used a mix of green and black)
  • 3-4 sun dried tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 tbsp of crumbled feta cheese


  1. Put all the ingredients together into a food processor and turn on until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.
  2. Scoop out and serve with fresh bread, crackers or veggies.

    This sounds yummy! I’ve always wanted to test out hummus, and I think this might be my first recipe to try. :)
