This contains olives rather than olive oil to fit in with Orthodox Lenten food. It gives the hummus an interesting speckled effect. This recipe needs a food processor.

Cookbook creator says: This looks great! When I try it I will rate it. You could cut the calories in half by leaving out the sunflower seeds, but that would leave out most of the protein. Also, I would probably only use a half cup as a serving. Would be nice for a Lenten Potluck!
