Of course, we can't talk about chickpeas without a hummus recipe! I made this yesterday and it took about 5 minutes to whip up with a food processor. Very easy and much cheaper than the store bought version (and richer in taste in you ask me). I made mine spicy but you can personalize it any way you want.
1 (14.5oz) can chickpeas, drained & rinsed
2 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp olive oil
Juice from 1 lemon
For spicy hummus, add salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes and Sriracha sauce to taste. You can also adjust the consistency of the hummus by adding more or less lemon juice and olive oil.
Some additional chickpea recipes to consider:
Smashed Chickpea and Avocado Salad Sandwich from Two Peas & Their Pod
Chickpea Sweet Potato Burgers from Self
Rigatoni with Roasted Chickpeas and Broccoli from Self
Creamy Cashew Kale & Chickpea from Vegangela
Rustic Chickpea Stew with Apricots from Simple Bites
Other than in hummus, have you ever tried chickpeas? Do you have any different recipes to share with me!?
