Serving Ideas : Serve with warm pitas,bread or next to any grilled chicken dish

NOTES : The first ingredient is actually 12 ounces cooked chick-peas measured after the extra liquid is drained.. I would probably just use a 19-ounce/540 mL can of chickpeas and rinse and drain the contents.

I don't think I have made this recipe yet. The contents suggest a spread with some similarity to hummus, but with less fat and none of that lovely sesame seed taste.
