Directions

Smash the 4 large garlic cloves and toss into the food processor or blender with oil and salt. Drain the cans of chickpeas and rinse them, then add a ½-cup of them and blend until watery and smooth. Add the remaining chickpeas, ½ of the strained lemon juice, cumin, and pepper, and pulse until smooth. Add remaining lemon juice to adjust texture. Adjust the seasoning as needed and dig in.
