Ingredients

  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large avocado, seeded, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach, packed
  • 1/2 large fresh lemon, juiced
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus extra for seasoning

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. Place all the ingredients into a high speed food processor or blender.
  2. Blend all together to desired smoothness. You may need to stop the blender/food processor and scrape down the sides several times till all the ingredients are blended well. 

  3. Taste and add more salt and pepper as desired.
  4. Serve immediately, with your favorite veggies and chips!

Recipe Notes

  • The amount of olive oil needed may depend on the power of your blender or food processor. If you have a really high powered blender, you will likely need less olive oil. Conversely, if you do not have a high powered blender or food processor, you will likely need more liquid to get the blades spinning to create the dip.
  • If you’d like to reduce the oil content of the dip, you can substitute half of the olive oil with water. This will help to thin out the dip to the consistency that you prefer. You can also add water if your blender or food processor is a lower speed, and needs more liquid to get things moving.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
