The title really says it all with this one. It’s smooth, it’s delicious, and it’s fantastic on anything!
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 celery stick, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • ¼ red pepper, chopped
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup cooked potato – I just popped a small baked potato in the microwave until cooked through and measured ¼ cup, then ate the leftovers with coconut oil while standing at the stove.
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas + ¼ cup reserved liquid
  • 1 teaspoon himalayan rock salt
  • cumin, for garnish
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan [I like to use cast iron]. Once heated, add onion and garlic and sautée for 2-3 minutes on medium heat, mixing every minute or so to avoid burning.
  2. Add celery, carrot, and red pepper. Cover and cook on medium-low heat for 4-5 minutes until carrots are tender.
  3. In a blender combine reserved liquid, lemon juice, tahini, and olive oil. Top with sautéed veggies, potato, chickpeas, and salt.
  4. Blend until smooth.
  5. Garnish with cumin and serve with crackers or vegetable sticks.
Will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days.
