2 cloves garlic, chopped. This would have tasted better with 3, but the raw garlic makes me smelly, so I’ll cut this to 1 or use minced next time.
2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
If substituting lime juice, use half as much and make up the liquid difference with water.
1 teaspoon low sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons of the liquid the canned chickpeas came in. Drain the chickpeas into a cup and draw your liquid from that. You can use water.
Blend into a thick paste, adding liquid if needed. It helps if your blender doesn’t suck like mine does.
This really didn’t taste like much until I added spices. I added smoked paprika, crushed red pepper, a little chili powder, and salt.
