Ready In:
8 snacks




  • Put the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, half the garlic and the cumin into a food processor and process until smooth.
  • With the motor running, add the coriander and olive oil and process until smooth, transfer to a bowl and then cover and set aside.
  • Cook the capsicum and tomatoes on a lightly oiled chargrill pan or barbecue plate until the skins have blackened and then transfer to a plastic bag and allow to cool and then peel the capsicum and tomatoes (the best way to do this is to put a cross in the bottom and plunge into boiling water for about 30 seconds, remove and peel), remove the seeds and finely chop the flesh.
  • Chop the remaining garlic and combine with the chopped capsicum and tomatoes and season with sea salt and pepper.
  • Spoon the capsicum mixture onto the chickpea dip and serve with celery sticks for scooping.
  • Serves 8 as a snack.

    Made the dip but not the topping and it was fabulous. I picked the coriander fresh from the garden and served the dip with rice crackers.

With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
