In This Recipe


  1. Put the chickpeas in a food processor & pulse 5-10 times
  2. Add the the rest of the ingredients
  3. Purée for one or two minutes, adding cooking liquid or olive oil (a tablespoon at a time) until the mixture is to your desired smoothness.
  4. Taste and adjust the seasoning (I often find I like to add much more lemon juice). Serve drizzled with olive oil
