1 1/2 cups (or 1 can) of chickpeas, drained
1 1/2 cups (or 1 can) of black beans, drained
2 cloves garlic crushed (optional)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste
Blend it all up and adjust seasoning to taste. If it's a little too thick you can add a little more olive oil or some water. I cook my own beans in the slow cooker which is so much cheaper than the canned ones. This made a delicious afternoon tea today with carrots and wholemeal pita chips (also home made). To make pita chips simply chop up some pita bread, pop it on a baking tray, spray with a little oil and bake it in a moderate oven till slightly crisp. I've tried sprinkling cajun spice on them which worked well too.
