Recipe Notes

Chef's Note:

  • If using dried chickpeas (garbanzo beans), cook according to package directions and allow to cool. Use about 2 cups cooked chickpeas in the recipe above. Reserve some of the cooking liquid to help reach desired consistency.
  • This is an easy recipe to adapt to add more flavor like olives, roasted red peppers or pine nuts. Just add  to the food processor with the rest of the ingredients.
