Courses: Starters and appetizers, Vegetarian
Serves: 12 people

Recipe Ingredients

2   Cucumbers
15 oz 426gGarbanzo beans - canned, drained
1 tablespoon 15mlExtra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon 15mlWater
1/3 cup 78mlLemon juice - fresh
1 teaspoon 5mlSalt
1/4 cup 36g / 1.3ozBlack olives - diced

Recipe Instructions

Cut off the ends of cucumbers. Cut each cucumber widthwise into 6 pieces and turn pieces so they are flat. With a melon baller or grapefruit spoon, gently scoop out some flesh from the top of each cucumber.

IN a food processor or blender, make hummus by combining garbanzos, oil, water, lemon juice and salt. Puree, adding more water if needed for creaminess. Stir in black olives and spoon mixture into the hollowed out part of each cucumber. Place on a serving tray.

Makes 12 appetizers.

Helpful hints:

Use California black olives for a mild taste, or Greek black olives for a more pungent flavor.

Hummus can be made up to a week in advance. Filled rounds can be prepared up to two days in advance but are best assembled immediately before serving.

Keep cucumbers covered with plastic wrap to prevent drying out.
