I saw this on a board and can't wait to try it!
- 1 (14 ounce) can chickpeas
- 1 teaspoon garlic
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon red pepper
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- Using a food processor, combine all ingredients.
- Add a bit of olive oil, if desired.
- I believe that the chickpeas come in a 14 oz can, use size that is closest.
I thought this recipe was so-so. I'm curious if the poster has made this recipe now... please post an update if you have one! My first question/problem was... "red pepper"? What form? I thought at first it meant fresh red pepper, but when I saw the quanity, I realized it was more likely red pepper flakes. That is what I used... a little less than the 1/2 t. called for, and it was still a bit too spicy for my husband/kids. And then my other problem was because I don't have a food processor... I've made hummus in the blender before so I thought it would be fine. But once I got the ingredients in, I realized this recipe was way too dry to be processed in a blender. I ended up having to alter the recipe just to be be able to mix it in my blender - I upped the lemon juice to 1.5 T. And I added water little by little. But I really don't think that was the problem... the taste was just sort of blah. I think I will just buy tahini and count the points for WW Core. Bummer. I really wanted to love this. If anyone else has any tips to spice it up a bit (and stay within WW Core), please post them!
