What You'll Need

  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas or garbanzo beans
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic or 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

How to Make It

Drain chickpeas and set aside liquid from can. Combine remaining ingredients in blender or food processor. Add 1/4 cup of liquid from chickpeas. Blend for 3-5 minutes on low until thoroughly mixed and smooth.
