What You Will Need:
2 Cups of cooked Chick peas (for more flavor, cook your chickpeas in a homemade vegetable stock or chicken stock) as always using canned is fine, just rinse the chickpeas well and read the ingredients.
1 Bunch of Fresh Radishes, diced
2 Lemons, juiced
Zest of 1 Lemon
2 Cloves of fresh Garlic, sliced
1 Small Bunch of Fresh Basil
1 Tbsp of olive oil
Salt to taste

In a blender add the chickpeas, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, basil, and salt.

Extra: I love this recipe because you replace most of the olive oil with lemon juice to save on calories. You can play with the ingredients by adding roasted red peppers instead of radish, or you can make it with roasted garlic and pine nuts! Ok I’m hungry now!
