  • lfresh parsley to taste


  • 15 ounces canned chickpeas drained, reserve liquid
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. fresh parsley


  • Add chickpeas, garlic cloves, and 3/4 of your oil to your food processor.
  • Also, mix in the salt, lemon juice, and half the red pepper.
  • Blend until smooth. If the mixture is too thick add in a little of the extra chickpeas juices. I ended up using about 2 tablespoons of mine.
  • Once creamy, add to a serving dish. Top with remaining oil, pepper, and extra parsley.
  • Serve with chips, pita crackers, on an English muffin or with chips.
