$7.00 seems like a lot of scratch for just chickpeas, with a little garlic, lemon juice, olive oil & a little tahini

 

what's your go to recipe ?

1 can of garbanzo beans rinsed

1/4 cup (or less) of tahini

coupla squeezes of fresh lemon

1tbs cumin

1tbs minced garlic

pinch of sea salt

 

Throw all this in the food processor and blend until smooth.   If it too thick, add a couple of tablespoons of water to get it moving.

 

 

Voila!

Found out this winter that it's smoother if you remove the skins from the chickpeas, but it's a hassle to get them off.

If you but dried chickpeas, cook 'em for an hour, then dump them into icy cold water, the skin break away, and 90% of your beans will be skin free.  Rinse them in a colander to remove the rest.

 

They taste better (IMO).  And as a by product, you can use the bean water instead of oil (a la Moosewood)

I have a food processor that you could puree a small child in....so the skins get pulverized.

 

EEeew.   What a gross example I used :lol:

Black Bean Chummus - Motti Python

One can of black beans drained and rinsed

One can of chick peas drained and rinsed

2-5 cloves garlic (to taste)

Cilantro

Salt (to taste)

Pepper (to taste)

Juice of one lemon

Extra virgin olive oil

 

In a food processor

start with the garlic, and pulse the food possessor until its chopped finely, but in the can of the chick peas and the can of black beans, and be careful not to chop this for too long, or it will be too creamy. add lemon juice salt and pepper, and turn on food processor and drizzle olive oil, I myself like it a bit more roughly chopped, not totally smooth but its to your taste, garnish with cilantro.
