Directions:
I put the garlic in the food processor first, add the rest of the ingredients and blend. Drizzle 1 to 2 Tbs. olive oil as you are processing. If it is too dry, you can add a small amount of water or liquid from the chickpeas. You can add a little plain yogurt if you want it to be creamier.
