Hummus Toasts with Olives

A friend made me an awesome recipe book and here is one of the recipes..


  • 1 1/2 cups canned chickpeas
  • juice of 1 large lemon
  • 6 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • s&p
  • chopped fresh cilantro and olives to garnish
  • 1 ciabatta loaf, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
  • 4 tbsp olive oil


  1. To make the hummus, first drain the chickpeas, reserving a little of the liquid. Put the chickpeas and liquid in a food processor and blend, gradually adding the reserved liquid and lemon juice. Blend well after each addition until smooth.
  2. Stir in the tahini and all but 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Add the garlic, season to taste, and blend again until smooth.
  3. Spoon the hummus into a serving dish. Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the top, and garnish with chopped cilantro and olives. Cover and chill in the refrigerator while preparing the toasts.
  4. Lay the slices of ciabatta on a broiler rack in a single layer.
  5. Mix the garlic, cilantro, and olive oil together and drizzle over the bread slices. Cook under a hot broiler for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown, turning once. Serve hot with hummus.


My changes: I used kalamata olives instead of black and I forgot to buy cilantro… so I omitted it from the hummus and used dried parsley on the toasts
