Hummus or Chickpea spread

Nothing says 'Special Grown-up Party Food' like dip.  And not French Onion dip of the 80s (Sour cream plus 1 pkt French Onion Soup - delish!!) but a dip made with legumes, lentils, roasted spices, dukkah, tahini.....  Okay,  that's not what this is.  But the kids don't know, right?  Dip is dip?


Ingredients
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 can chickpeas - drained and rinsed
  • 2 tabs Canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp Citric Acid
  • 50g Pear Ketchup
Method
  • Whizz up garlic
  • Add all other ingredients and puree  5 Seconds on Speed 7 
  • Keeps in fridge about 3-4 days
