What You’ll Need:
- 1 can of Chickpeas
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 1/2 tablespoons of Tahini paste
- 1 large lemon, juiced
- Dash of Cumin Powder
- Dash of Chili Powder
In a handy chopper, mince the garlic as shown below.
Once you have minced your garlic, add in your chickpeas. Be sure to drain about half of the chickpea juice and reserve a few of your whole chickpeas for garnish.
After your chickpeas are well minced, add in 2 1/2 teaspoons of Tahini paste, lemon juice (hope you don’t have paper cuts) and the salt and pepper. Drizzle about 2 teaspoons of EVOO into the mixture as well.
Blend together until creamy and to your taste.
Once blended, spoon into a serving bowl and mix in a dash of cumin and chili powder for a little kick. Drizzle with a little olive oil and serve with warmed pita, pita chips, veggies or on a wrap!
