Ingredients

  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • Two, 15 ounce cans chickpeas, drained
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 2 tablespoons tahini, toasted sesame paste
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1 teaspoon Harissa, or other hot pepper condiment, to taste
  • 10 ounce jar roasted red peppers
  • Kosher salt

Directions

  • Pulse the chickpeas and garlic in the food processor until uniformly ground. Add the lemon juice and tahini. If needed, add 1/4 water so that the chickpea mixture becomes a smooth paste. Add the cumin, harissa, half of the roasted red peppers, and ½ teaspoon salt. Process until smooth. Taste for spiciness and add more harrisa as needed.
  • Add the remaining roasted red peppers and pulse to coarsely chop. Enjoy as a dip or sauce for grilled tofu skewers.

Notes

*Harissa is a Tunisian hot pepper sauce. If you can't find harrisa, use any other spicy pepper sauce you have on hand.
