Mezzetta Garlic Stuffed Olive Hummus Recipe & Fire-Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Mezzetta, hummus recipe,
Thank you to Mezzetta for sponsoring this post and inspiring me to create an awesome holiday recipe for my family to enjoy.

I was so excited to be able to participate in the Mezetta Memories campaign! They have so many products that are perfect for adding a punch of flavor to dishes, and this time of year, I can use a shortcut to flavorful foods everyone will love! I know I love their olives and usually have several types of them in my fridge.

I knew immediately I wanted to make hummus. I have guests coming over tomorrow for lunch and I want an additional appetizer to go along with what I’m going to prepare, and I need to be able to keep it light and flavorful. The Mezzetta Garlic-Stuffed Olives and Fire-Roasted Red Peppers turned out to be perfect for making a quick, healthy hummus that’s sure to be a huge hit!

This is SUCH an easy recipe. No cooking, just ingredients piled into a blender or food processor and voila!!! I’ve made a lot of hummus in my day and I have to say, using the Mezzetta olives and peppers gave it such a lift- it is easily the best hummus I’ve ever made. I’m having to refrain from wolfing down the olive-garlic one with a spoon before my guests get here tomorrow! I don’t think I’ll ever make plain hummus again! You can find some other awesome recipes on the Mezzata website.

2 cans chickpeas, one drained, one with liquid
1T garlic powder
1/3 C tahini
3T lemon juice
1C Mezzetta Fire-Roasted Red Peppers
Cumin (if desired) for dusting

Add all ingredients except the cumin to your blender or food processor. Blend to a smooth consistency. Serve garnished with more Mezzetta Fire-Roasted Red Peppers, a sprinkling of cumin, and you’re good to go!

1/3 C tahini
3T lemon juice
1/2-2/3 C Mezzetta Garlic Stuffed Olives

Add all ingredients to your blender or food processor. Blend to a smooth consistency. You can adjust the amount of olives & garlic to taste- I love garlic more than I can say, so I went heavy on them. Yum.

These dips are fantastic for holiday get-togethers- no baking or cooking, no messy cleanup. It takes a mere five minutes to prepare and serve, and with some pita bread or crackers they make a perfect addition to any meal or potluck.

  1. The olives look good but I have never been interested in trying hummus. Mezzetta has some great products.

  2. We love olives. Try to eat them on cheese plates but also in salads and as an addition to dinner at times

  3. Roasted red pepper hummus is one of my favorites! I haven’t liked the hummus I’ve made so far and I know it’s me. I’ll have to give it a try again.
