  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 1 Black Pepper

Directions

  1. Drain the chick peas, reserving the liquid. Place chick peas in a processor with all the other ingredients and blend until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Alternatively, mash the chick peas as smoothly as possible and then beat in the other ingredients to make a smoothish mixture.
  3. Add enough of the reserved liquid to give a light, soft consistency like softly whipped cream.

  5. Pour a little olive oil over the top, then sprinkle with paprika and garnish with olives and lemon wedges.
