Peel and roughly chop garlic clove. (You can use 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic in place of a garlic clove.)
Place ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Blend for several minutes or until it's smooth and creamy. If the hummus seems too stiff, drizzle in another tablespoon of olive oil. Taste and season according to your fabulous taste buds.
Garnish with grated parmesan cheese, diced olives, halved cherry tomatoes, and basil chiffonade.
Serve with crunchy whole grain crackers and sturdy cucumber slices. Yields: About 1 1/2 Cups
