Making hummus at home is easy and fast. This recipe calls for tahini which you can usually find in larger grocery stores. Use your favorite infused olive oils to create a trio of hummus dips for a party or make one large batch of YOUR favorite.

Ingredients:
• 1 (15oz) can chickpeas/garbanzo beans
• 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
• 1/4 cup tahini
• 2 Tbsp Cosimano EVOO: Garlic, Lemon or Basil infused

• 1/2 to 1 tsp Sea Salt
• 1/2 tsp ground cumin
• 2-3 Tbsp water
• Dash of ground paprika and additional olive oil for serving

Making hummus at home is easy and fast. This recipe calls for tahini which you can usually find in larger grocery stores. Use your favorite infused olive oils to create a trio of hummus dips for a party or make one large batch of YOUR favorite.

Ingredients:
• 1 (15oz) can chickpeas/garbanzo beans
• 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
• 1/4 cup tahini
• 2 Tbsp Cosimano EVOO: Garlic, Lemon or Basil infused

• 1/2 to 1 tsp Sea Salt
• 1/2 tsp ground cumin
• 2-3 Tbsp water
• Dash of ground paprika and additional olive oil for serving

* As you add ingredients to your food processor, process each step for about 30 seconds and be sure to stop and scrape the sides of the bowl and process for an additional 30 seconds. Repeat this for each step to ensure you are blending evenly.

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine tahini and lemon juice.
  2. Add 2 Tbsps of your choice of infused olive oil, garlic, basil or lemon.
  3. Add the cumin and the salt.
  4. Open can of chickpeas, drain liquid into a separate bowl. Add half of the chickpeas to the food processor then process for 1 minute.
  5. Most likely the hummus will be too thick or still have grainy bits of chickpea. To fix this, turn on the food processor and slowly add the reserved liquid from the chickpeas gradually.
  6. Scrape the hummus into a bowl then drizzle about 1 Tbsp of additional oil over the top and sprinkle with a dash of paprika.
  7. Garnish and serve

Chocolate Olive Oil Mousse

Ingredients:
6 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
3 egg yolks
1/4 cup Cosimano Chocolate Olive Oil
3 Tbsp warm water
1/4 tsp. sea salt
2 egg whites
1/8 tsp. cream of tartar

Put the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl and set over but not touching barely simmering water in a saucepan. Stir the chocolate until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and whisk in the egg yolks, olive oil, warm water and salt until well blended.

Spoon the mousse into 4 custard cups, dividing evenly. Refrigerate until well chilled, at least 4 hours or up to overnight. Sprinkle with the chocolate shavings and serve immediately!

Making hummus at home is easy and fast. This recipe calls for tahini which you can usually find in larger grocery stores. Use your favorite infused olive oils to create a trio of hummus dips for a party or make one large batch of YOUR favorite.

Ingredients:
• 1 (15oz) can chickpeas/garbanzo beans
• 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
• 1/4 cup tahini
• 2 Tbsp Cosimano EVOO: Garlic, Lemon or Basil infused

• 1/2 to 1 tsp Sea Salt
• 1/2 tsp ground cumin
• 2-3 Tbsp water
• Dash of ground paprika and additional olive oil for serving

* As you add ingredients to your food processor, process each step for about 30 seconds and be sure to stop and scrape the sides of the bowl and process for an additional 30 seconds. Repeat this for each step to ensure you are blending evenly.

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine tahini and lemon juice.
  2. Add 2 Tbsps of your choice of infused olive oil, garlic, basil or lemon.
  3. Add the cumin and the salt.
  4. Open can of chickpeas, drain liquid into a separate bowl. Add half of the chickpeas to the food processor then process for 1 minute.
  5. Most likely the hummus will be too thick or still have grainy bits of chickpea. To fix this, turn on the food processor and slowly add the reserved liquid from the chickpeas gradually.
  6. Scrape the hummus into a bowl then drizzle about 1 Tbsp of additional oil over the top and sprinkle with a dash of paprika.
  7. Garnish and serve

Chocolate Olive Oil Mousse

Ingredients:
6 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
3 egg yolks
1/4 cup Cosimano Chocolate Olive Oil
3 Tbsp warm water
1/4 tsp. sea salt
2 egg whites
1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 cup sugar
Chocolate shavings for serving (optional)

Instructions:
Put the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl and set over but not touching barely simmering water in a saucepan. Stir the chocolate until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and whisk in the egg yolks, olive oil, warm water and salt until well blended.

In a clean bowl, using an electric mixer set on medium-high speed, beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until frothy. Add the sugar and continue beating until the mixture forms soft peaks. Fold about one-third of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture until no white streaks remain. Gently fold in the remaining whites until well incorporated.

Spoon the mousse into 4 custard cups, dividing evenly. Refrigerate until well chilled, at least 4 hours or up to overnight. Sprinkle with the chocolate shavings and serve immediately!
