Ingredients

  • 1 cup 165g Chickpeas (cooked -you can use Organic canned chickpeas)
  • 2 ripe Avocados medium size
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp. Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. Tahini sesame seed paste
  • Juice of one Lemon
  • Salt to taste
  • Pinch of chili flakes
  • 2 tbsp water

Instructions

  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender/or food processor.
  2. Blend until all the ingredients are smooth in texture. You can scrape the sides in the middle of the blending.
  3. Taste and see if you need to add more salt.
  4. It can be refrigerated up to 3 days in airtight container.

How to prepare chickpeas:

  1. Soak a bag of chickpeas (1 lbs/453 g) overnight and at least for 8 hours with 1 tbsp. of baking soda.
  2. Wash chickpeas and add water to the chickpeas. Add 1 tbsp of baking soda as this will help with chickpea skin. It removes easier.
  3. Cook for 45-50 minutes on medium-high heat. Skim the foam that will form while the chickpeas are cooking.
  4. Drain, wash and remove the skin by hand if you see any.
  5. After chickpeas are chilled, store them in airtight containers and I the fridge for up to 10 days.

Recipe Notes

You can add more lemon juice if you like it "more" sour. I added just a tbsp. Of olive oil, and a drizzle on the end when I was garnishing it. I don't think it's necessary to add more.
