"There is no love sincerer than the love of food."

People ask me all the time about when to use different oils. I always say that using an extra virgin olive oil should be kept for finishing or in dishes where you won't cook away the flavor. This hummus is a great example of that and the flavor of your best, fruity, extra virgin olive oil is perfect for this Mediterranean inspired hummus.
