Ingredients

Hummus

  • 10 ounces dried chickpeas
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

Loaded Hummus

  • 1 cup chopped cucumbers
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • ½ cup feta crumbles
  • ½ cup sliced green olives You can also use kalamata or even black olives if you prefer
  • olive oil
  • 1 ½-2 cups hummus Make your own as I will show, or simply buy it

Instructions

Hummus in the pressure cooker

  • Add the dried chickpeas, water, and salt to the pressure cooker. Seal the lid and set it to cook for 45 minutes. Once it is finished, do the quick release. Drain the chickpeas and add them to 4 cups of ice water. Gently rub the chickpeas between your fingers to release the skins. Skim out the skin from the water and remove. Once you have quite a few out, I wouldn't spend more than 5 minutes on this. Drain and place the chickpeas in a food processor or blender. Add in the olive oil, garlic, and about ½ teaspoon salt. Blend really, really well. Add in more olive oil and salt as needed. That's it! Done!

Healthy Loaded Mediterranean Hummus Dip

  • Spread your hummus on the serving plate. Top with cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, and feta. Give it a good drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. You can also sprinkle with paprika if you want.
    This can easily be made beforehand. Then serving is a breeze.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
