Entering the second week of my 60-Day Challenge, presented a challenge in itself – entertaining friends.

With a little ingenuity, in minutes I was able to whip up something simple, unique, flavoursome and in keeping with my challenge goals, simply by using a can of chickpeas. A twist on the standard hummus dip, I decided to halve the amount of olive oil and make this vegetarian chickpea pâté instead.

The pâté is thick and perfect for spreading on small toast, flaxseed crackers or simply eating it with vegetable crudités.

Chickpea Pâté; a trendy way of serving chickpeas with a twist.


For people who are intolerant to onion and garlic as I am, this recipe stills packs a punch, just use a little more lemon juice and ground black pepper. You could also add a few leaves of fresh basil or mint.

Preparation Time: 5-mins
Cooking Time: Nil
Makes: 4 as a side dish

Ingredients
400gm Chickpeas
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
Juice of 1 Lemon
100ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3-4 Basil Leaves (optional)

Method

Hi Felli, when I made this recipe I didn't use any tahini however, depending on the mood I will incorporate tahini as an ingredient. When I want more of a dip I will add tahini as it enriches the flavour, on those occasions I will add 1-2 teaspoons of tahini (usually 1 heaped teaspoon so it doesn't over power the chickpea taste. It all depends on your personal taste you can add tahini or leave it out (I must admit I love it and will generally add 1-2 teaspoons). Hope this helps to explain and answers your question. Cheers Annalisa
how much Yahini would you use I. This recipe? Thanks
I've made the chickpea pate with and without tahini depending if I want to add another level of flavour. The recipe works well with or without. This particular time I didn't use tahini.
There's a jar of tahini in your photo. Is it an ingredient?
Thanks.
