This dip utilizes Roasted Garlic, a recipe that I shared a few weeks ago. The garlicis combined with some other very healthy ingredients, and it tastes amazing! It's versatile; serve it as a dip with fresh veggies or toasted pita wedges, and equally tasty as a sandwich spread. The fact that you can whip it up in just a few minutes is a bonus.
1 can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed
1 Tablespoon roasted garlic
2 Tablespoons tahini paste
Grated zest and juice of one medium lemon
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Salt, to taste
Place the beans, garlic, tahini, lemon juice and zest in a food processor and blend until smooth. Slowly stream in the olive oil (add more for a thinner consistency.) Add salt to taste.
Refrigerate for at least an hour to allow the flavors to marry.
