Rachelle Hinrichs

1 can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and liquid reserved

A handful fresh parsley leaves or 1 tsp dried parsley
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground paprika
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
Pinch kosher salt
1/3 cup oil

If using dried garlic and parsley, soak in very hot water in a small bowl for 5 minutes.
Otherwise, chop the garlic finely in a food processor.
Add the beans and 1/2 of the reserved liquid and process finely or to desired consistency.
Add the peanut butter, parsley, lemon zest and juice, cumin, paprika, black pepper, and
Process until it forms a paste.
Drizzle in the oil slowly and process until it reaches the consistency of mayonnaise.

Rest in the fridge overnight tightly covered before serving to allow flavors to blend.
