  • 1 can chickpeas (15 ounces)
  • 2 cloves garlic (peeled and minced, about 1 teaspoon)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Drain the liquid from the chickpeas. It's easiest to dump them into a sieve/strainer. Be sure to save the juice to use as egg white replacer!

  2. Place the drained chickpeas, peeled garlic cloves, lemon juice and salt in your mini food processor.
  3. Blend on high until smooth. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
