Yes, that says 10 POUNDS of Chick Peas--before I left college, I had to "borrow" this recipe from my favorite cafe, hence the industrial sized proportions. I think a #10 can is 10lbs, so scale the recipe down to your amount--I always cut everything in 1/3, and it still makes a lot!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Drain Chick Peas, and Mash with Potato Masher!
  2. Mix all other ingredients together.
  3. Pour mixed ingredients into Chick Peas, mash further.
  4. Hints--you can leave out most of the Tahini and Oil, and just add fat-free plain yogurt until it is at desired consistency, and add a bit of mustard too.
  5. I like mine chunky, like they had it at the cafe, but most people blend theirs.
  6. I also use extra lemon juice, and substitute chopped parsley for the scallion.
  7. Other tangy add-ins--the juice from a jar of pickles gives a kick, as does hot sauce.
  8. Serve with pita wedges, nachos, or in a"Hummanitarian" sandwich with lettuce, tomato, and sprouts.
  9. (50 servings is a guess, I never tried the whole 10 lbs).
