The days are getting longer and simple recipes are our go-to to make the most of the sunlight. Super nutritious and flavorful (great source of protein, fiber, iron and calcium), we’re loving this recipe from our friends at Orga Foods.
2 cups well-cooked Chickpeas, drained
1/2 cup Tahini
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus more for drizzling
2 cloves Garlic, peeled
1 tbsp ground Cumin or Paprika
Juice of 1 Lemon
Chopped fresh Parsley
1/4 cup Water
Za’atar and Sesame Seeds for garnish
(Make your own Za’atar: 1 tbsp roasted sesame seeds, 1/4 cup sumac (or lemon zest), 2 tbsp thyme, 1 tbsp marjoram, 1 tbsp dried oregano, 1 tsp coarse salt). Grind the sesame seeds, add remaining ingredients.
Place tahini, olive oil, garlic, salt, cumin or paprika, and lemon juice in a food processor and begin to blend.
Add chickpeas slowly, along with water, and continue to blend until desired consistency is reached.
Top with Za’atar and sesame seeds…and enjoy!
