Athens’ Chick Pea Spread

From the Athens on 4th Avenue, Tucson, Arizona, this homemade version of hummus is fast, easy, and oh-so tasty. We make this dish in 2 gallon batches as a special (it’s not on our regular menu) and we can hardly keep up with the orders.

What You Need

  • 6 cups cooked chick peas
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. sea salt


Pulse until smooth in a food processor and serve with warm pita bread.
