Ingredients

  • 1 cup toasted hazelnuts (about 4 oz.; see below) or 1/4 cup hazelnut butter
  • 1 can (14 oz.) garbanzos, rinsed and drained
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon hazelnut oil (optional)

Preparation

  1. To toast the hazelnuts, bake in a 375° oven until golden under skins (break one to test), 10 to 15 minutes. When cool enough to handle, rub in a kitchen towel to remove as many skins as possible.
  2. In a food processor, whirl hazelnuts until smooth. Add garbanzos, olive oil, garlic, parsley, and lemon juice, and whirl again until smooth. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, to thin to desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle with hazelnut oil, if desired.
