Hummus Bake with Feta and Kalamata Olives

This heated version of hummus, with a sprinkling of feta and olives, is perfect for dipping with crackers or lavash (a thin, flat Armenian bread).

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

2. Place the chickpeas, garlic, stock, tahini, lemon juice, oil, chili sauce, pepper and cumin in the bowl of a food processor. Purée until smooth and transfer to a mixing bowl.

3. Add 1/4 cup of the feta (leaving the remaining feta for the topping) and the olives and stir to combine.

4. Place the mixture in a small ovenproof baking dish lightly coated with cooking spray and sprinkle with the remaining feta. Bake for 12 minutes, or just until heated through and the top is slightly browned.

5. Garnish with cilantro and serve with pita wedges or crackers.

1 can (19 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 clove of garlic
1/2 cup vegetable (or chicken) stock
3 Tbsp tahini (sesame seed paste)
3 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp hot chili sauce
pinch of pepper
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese (about 1 1/2 oz)
