Clean Eat Recipe :: Simple & Spicy Chickpea Dip


Is it hummus? Nope - there's no Tahini! Is it loaded with stuff I can't eat if I'm eating clean? Absolutely not! Will my friends that don't eat clean like it? We certainly hope so! Is it a great appetizer to bring over to a Labor Day BBQ? Absolutely!!

What are you waiting for? This simple dip takes all of about 5 minutes to make and paired with baked Ezekiel tortilla chips (simply use a pizza slicer to cut into wedges and then place on a baking sheet and bake to a golden crisp), it's the perfect compliment to your holiday weekend festivities.

Simple & Spicy Chickpea Dip

1 BPA-free can of organic chick peas, drained and washed
1 large clove of garlic
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil

1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and process for approximately 45-60 seconds.
2. Enjoy!

He & She Tip: If you would like the dip to be less chunky, simply add more olive oil. It will change the fat/calories for the dip.

  1. Yummm! Pinned this one to try as soon as I get home from vacation!

  2. why wouldn't you eat tahini?

    1. Is there something "bad" about sesame seeds and a good quality oil?

  3. Hummus is called Hummus because of Tahini. Those who are gluten intolerant or sensitive cannot eat soy ingredients. That's all.
