Olive Hummus with Toasted Pinenuts

Mmmmm....hummus. I freaking love hummus and I eat the shit out of it!  Why buy it when it is so easy to make and when popular brands have all this garbage...

Instead....make this!

Olive Hummus with Toasted Pinenuts

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 cloves garlic
2 Tbsp tahini
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/3 c mixture of kalamata olives and green olives...or get creative and use jalapeƱo stuffed green olives
1/2 c juice from olive jars
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (or substitute flax oil for an extra health boost!)
Salt & Pepper to taste
1/4 pine nuts, toasted on a dry skillet until lightly browned

Process all ingredients except for the Pinenuts in a food processor until smooth. Add more olive juice if you need to smooth it out a little. Top with toasted pine nuts, a drizzle of olive oil and garnish with additional chopped olives.
