1/4 cup water
2 garlic cloves, crushed
3/4 tsp. cumin
3/4 tsp. sea salt
(optional) 1/4 cup Greek olives or 1/4 cup roasted red peppers, one avocado, or 1 to 2 T sweet chili sauce

Blend all ingredients together in a high powered blender or food processor till smooth. 


  1. thanks for this recipe! much easier than i imagined. do you buy canned chick peas, or get dry ones and cook them?

  2. I cook them...super easy. Soak chick peas in enough water to cover them in the fridge overnight (at least 6-8 hours). Then at least two hours before you need them, put them into a sauce pan, cover with water, bring to a boil. Then turn the heat off and let them sit, covered for two hours. I usually cook more than I need at once and freeze the extra.

  3. thanks! do you pretty much cook all dried beans that way?

  4. yep. some take more or less time.

  5. I attest, this recipe is delicious!
