This chickpea dip is so easy. Just make it once and you’ll never forget it!

Ingredients

1 can (20 ounces) chickpeas
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons tahini or sesame seeds
Salt
Fresh ground pepper
Chopped fresh parsley
Paprika
Pita bread, warmed and cut into 2-inch triangles, or crisp raw vegetable sticks

Instructions

Drain the chickpeas and reserve the liquid. In a blender or food processor, combine the chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, and the tahini or sesame seeds. Blend until smooth. Add enough reserved liquid to make a creamy consistency. Taste and add salt and pepper. Pile in a serving bowl and garnish with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, parsley, and paprika. Store in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve. Serve with the pita bread triangles or vegetables.
