Use Canned Chickpeas OR Cook From Scratch

This olive hummus without tahini is great because you can use either canned chickpeas, or cook them from scratch.

I usually use my Instant Pot to make perfectly cooked chickpeas (no soaking required!) which are ready in 35 minutes. If you are using canned, make sure to get a “no salt added” variety to cut down on the sodium!

What’s In This Olive Hummus Recipe?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Kalamata Olives: make sure they are pitted! I love the rich briny flavor of these herby kalamata olives, which have a purple hue and a really nice flavor.
  • Green Olives with Pimento: classic green olives have a great color and delicious earthy flavor – I like using green olive with pimento, which are great for recipes that need just a few olives.
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Fresh garlic cloves
  • No Salt Added Chickpeas: the staple of all hummuses! You can use canned chickpeas (I’d highly recommend a low sodium or no salt version), or you can make your own chickpeas from scratch in the Instant Pot.
  • Smoked Paprika: give an additional depth of flavor to the hummus.
  • Red Chili Pepper Flakes: for a little heat! if you don’t like spice, you can absolutely skip them in this recipe.
  • Lemon

Pantry Appetizers: Olive Hummus without Tahini

This creamy olive hummus without tahini is a fantastic pantry-staple appetizer! It uses almost all ingredients you would have in your dry pantry or cupboards. You probably already have a lot of these ingredients on hand already. Keeping a well-stocked pantry makes it easy to come up with delicious meals using a few staples you can rotate.

I made a list of my Top 125 Plant-Based Pantry Staples that always keep on hand. And you can check out all my favorite pantry staple recipes on TheHerbeevore.com here. By stocking up on whole ingredients you can cook delicious recipes without a trip to the store!

Easy Chickpea Dip Anytime

This recipe calls for chickpeas aka garbanzo beans. This are one of my favorite beans – packed with plant-based protein, and are high in fiber! I’d recommend using a no-salt-added variety to keep the overall sodium content down, so you can control how much sodium is in the dish. Canned chickpeas taste great, so if you are using canned chickpeas, just watch the sodium or added salt content.

I make dried beans in my Instant Pot every week, it’s a great way to save on cost. If you’re a bean fan, then I’d recommend an Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker as a way to take your recipes to the next level!
