Fresh rosemary and lemon brighten mild, nutty chickpeas. Dip with pita wedges or endive leaves. For a quick lunch, try this in pita bread with sliced cucumbers and tomatoes. Or thin with a little vegetable broth to make an easy soup.
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup chopped green onions
2 (15 1/2-ounce) cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium vegetable broth (such as Swanson's Certified Organic)
How to Make It
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions; sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Add beans; sauté 1 minute. Place bean mixture and remaining ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth. Place bean mixture in a bowl.
I have been through a multitude of dips on CL, and this one just isn't up to par with the others i have found. It was a bit like a playdough texture...
I'd probably add more chicken broth to make it creamier!
This dip was okay but I used dried chickpeas (not canned) to make it and found the dip needed extra liquid added to it for it to puree to a smooth consistency. I might try making it again with canned chickpeas the next time I have fresh rosemary around.
