A great after school snack, served with fresh carrot, celery and red capsicum sticks.
Prepare chick peas as per instructions on pack. Drain well.
Puree chick peas in a blender or food processor. Add remaining ingredients (except pepper) and blend together.
Slowly add ¾ - 1 cup water until a smooth creamy consistency is reached to your liking.
Season with pepper to taste.
Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika.
Not only does this make a great dip, try spreading on warmed pita breads before topping with cooked chicken or lamb, tomato slices and shredded lettuce for a tasty souvlaki.
Thin down this recipe slightly with extra water making a delicious sauce to accompany a salad, grilled chicken breast, baked potatoes, grilled fish or steamed veggies.
