Smoky Chickpea Spread


  • 1 15oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained (or about 1.5 c cooked chickpeas)
  • 3/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried chipotle
  • 1/2 tsp dried garlic (or 1 clove minced fresh garlic)
  • 4 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp EVOO
Combine all ingredients in a food processor until mostly smooth (it will be thicker and chunkier than humus).  Add salt and pepper to taste

I made this spread last week and had it for lunch for 3 days in a row.  It was really good!  I ate in on a sandwich with Ezekiel 4:9 bread, spinach and shredded carrots.  If you eat dairy, it is really good with feta cheese.

Happy Monday!
