Ingredients

  • 1 can (1 1/2 cups chickpeas), drained

  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling

  • 2 roasted garlic cloves (or 1 small clove fresh garlic)

  • 1/4 cup Eliot's Spicy Thai Peanut Butter

  • 1/2 teaspoon Shawarma Spice

  • Grilled pita for dipping (brush with olive oil and grill/bake until crisp)

In a food processor or blender, combine the chickpeas with the garlic, peanut butter, lemon juice, 1/2 the olive oil and shawarma spice. Start blending and drizzle in the remaining  extra-virgin olive oil in a slow, steady stream and puree until very smooth.

Season the dip with salt, place in a bowl.  Sprinkle over some shawarma spice and drizzle with more olive oil, serve with warm pita.

Pro Tip: We make a quick chimichurri and spoon it into a little indent in the middle of the hummus for a double whammy. You can make your own by blending 1 cup packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, 2 garlic cloves, 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon of pepper flakes and seasoning with salt and pepper.
