Spicy White Bean Garlic Hummus – Flavor Your Life: EVOO
I use olive oil a lot when I am cooking. Olive oil is so flavorful and good for you. Knowing what makes a good olive oil and what to look for when buying it are not something that is common knowledge. Before I joined the Flavor of Life campaign, I always tried to buy quality olive oil but was never 100% certain. Below I am going to share with you some tips and knowledge from Flavor Your Life and also a Spicy White Bean Garlic Hummus recipe to use this EVOO in, from yours truly. 🙂
I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) to use. My opinions are my own. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links. I only recommend things that I love.
Flavor Your Life
Flavor Your Life is a campaign dedicated to providing the latest news in European Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This program hopes to educate US consumers so we know how to purchase better, authentic EVOO.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made by pressing the European Olive without any heat or chemicals, it is done this way to keep the EVOO fresh and pure. It has very low acidity to assure the quality of the taste. Expert tasters judge the oil and must agree that it meets the standards of the extra virgin rating.
Cooking with olive oil is so versatile. You can saute, fry, and bake with it. Make sure to store olive oil in a cool and dark place to keep it tasting fresh. The brand of olive oil I received is Zucchi, a premier Italian Olive Oil company. There are so many different types of olive oils. A European oil is dark green, herbal aroma, and grassy in flavor. Zucchi delivers traceable and sustainable products that you can trust.

Spicy White Bean Garlic Hummus + My Review
The recipe I decided to make was hummus. Reason being that I wanted the flavor of the EVOO to shine and it SO does in this recipe. This Zucchi Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil is delicious. It has a different taste than the other olive oils that I have tried, it is sweet and fruity.
This Spicy White Bean Garlic Hummus is so easy to make. Throw all the ingredients into a blender or food processor, blend and enjoy! I have a Ninja Blender, which I also use as a food processor, if you have a regular blender you are better off using the food processor.
This hummus is perfect served up with pita chips or veggies.
Isn’t it beautiful?!
How awesome would you look bringing this to a party or get together? Super awesome! 🙂
This recipe makes a lot, if you want it just for yourself you might want to cut the recipe in half.
Hopefully you learned something new about EVOO and try out this hummus. Let me know in the comments below.
Love and Laughs,
