Advanced and Core Plan
This is a recipe that appeared in my Maximized Living Nutrition Plans book 10 years ago. I realized it never made it to my blog and it is one of my favorites.
This is a delicious and full of flavor. It is great served with grainless crackers, vegetables, on a salad, or in a breadless sandwich.
1 can chickpeas
2 cloves garlic
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste) (you can put more to taste)
Lemon juice (adjust amount to desired consistency and taste)
Sea salt to taste
Optional add ins:
*Kim’s favorite: I personally love a lot of cumin and a dash of cayenne. When ready to serve, I drizzle more olive oil, paprika and fresh parsley
Drain chickpeas reserving about 1/4 cup of the liquid. Put chickpeas and reserved liquid in a food processor and process until smooth. Add all other ingredients and adjust to suit taste and consistency.
