My man Dave always makes the best appetizers but at Thanksgiving he wasn't feeling all that well and at the last minute told me he wasn't making anything. Now I had about an hour before our guests were to arrive for appetizers and drinks so I had to scramble. I got out the lap top and came across this recipe from a blog called Kitchen Simplicity and this is simplicity at it's best! You know by now I am a hummus freak but this one has to be added to my top 5! This also makes a GREAT sandwich spread so if you have any leftovers, try it on your next sandwich.
Chickpea Garlic Dip
I found 4 cloves of garlic quite overwhelming so I would start with two and add more to taste.
•1 can (19 oz) chickpeas, drained (reserving 2 tablespoons of liquid)
•1/2 cup mayonnaise
•2-4 garlic cloves, peeled
•1 tablespoon lemon juice
•1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. I did not need the reserved Tbsp of liquid but if yours is not spreadable, add the extra liquid. Serve this with pita chips, tortilla chips or fresh veggies.
