This healthy dip (which we call "hummus ganouj" ) is great with pita or vegetables (baby carrots, sliced bell pepper, cherry tomatoes). If you don't have a blender, finely dice the garlic and mash the chickpeas with a fork, and mix with all the other ingredients. Although the result won't be as creamy, that's how hummus was made before blenders existed.
This makes raw almonds delicious without using additional oil. They are great by themselves as a snack or mixed in with other dishes--chop roughly and add to green salads for extra protein and crunch, mix with a crumble topping for a lovely, fragrant flavor to your apple or peach crumble, or top your oatmeal with roasted almonds to add more essential vitamins to your meal.
