Kind of a hummus, but so much more! I like it in a sandwich on rye bread or kamut bread with some cucumber slices and alfalfa sprouts... I call that the gourmet hippie sandwich.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, mash the chickpeas. You don't want purée. You still want chunks, don't you?.
  2. Add the rest of ingredients.
  3. Mix well.
  4. Put in the refrigerator and let sit for a couple of hours, to let the flavors combine.
  5. Use as you would use hummus, or use it as a sandwich spread.

Absolutely delicious! I was about to make this (basically), then I decided to see if there was a recipe online for it - and here it is! This is a great recipe - the only thing I did was add some srirachi (Asian hot sauce) because I like a kick. The flavor is wonderful though. Thanks very much!

I picked this spread and a pasta salad for our office birthday potluck. This spread was delicious and very easy to prepare. The directions were also simple to follow. Noting the poster's suggestion about rye bread, I picked up a loaf of the little cocktail rye slices and they were a huge hit (also, easy to transport). Thanks, Mad Maryno, this is a keeper!
