Cooking Directions

  1. Put lemon juice and all ingredients into the blender except the chickpeas (and the parsley and oil for garnish) and blend for 5 seconds.

  2. Add the chick peas and blend on high until it reaches the the consistency of sour cream, but granular, about 10 – 15 seconds.

  3. Blend in remaining lemon juice to taste.

  4. If the dip is too thick but you don't want to add more lemon juice, add a little water slowly and blend until it reaches the correct consistency.

  5. Transfer to a serving bowl, cover and refrigerate for a few hours before serving.

  6. (It can be eaten immediately, but becomes even more flavorful if left to chill well.)

  7. Drizzle of olive oil over the top and add a garnish of parsley or black olives before serving.

  8. Serve with pita wedges or slices of whole grain breads.
