Ingredients

  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil for serving
  • Paprika for serving
  • 7-8 ounces roasted red bell peppers drained and squeezed

Instructions

  • Place chickpeas in a bowl of water and rub them together to peel the skin (optional step, but helps create a creamy texture).
  • Drain the chickpeas and transfer them to a food processor. Blend them alone until they become powder-like, scraping down the sides as needed.
  • Add the lemon juice, tahini, garlic cloves and salt and 2-3 ice cubes, and blend for about 5 minutes until smooth.
  • Add roasted red bell peppers to the food processor and process until creamy and well blended.
  • Serve at room temperature or cold with naan or your favorite dippers.
