Top Review by Annacia

This was something new for me and I really enjoy the chickpea and walnut blend. It does make quite a bit. I actually used it for dinner and spread it on a Moroccan seasoned grilled chicken breast and served with a side salad and a green bean carrot mix. All in all quite tasty and healthy. Thank you.

In a blender or food processor bowl combine beans and 2 tablespoons of the reserved liquid, the walnuts, basil leaves, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cover and blend until nearly smooth (scrap down sides and add additional reserved liquid if mixture appears stiff).
  2. Serve on toasted baguette slices or pita slices. Store, covered, in the refrigerator up to 5 days. Makes about 20 (1 tablespoon) servings.
