Easy Garbanzo Dip With Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Amanda Haas


One day I was making hummus when I realized I didn't have one of the key ingredients — tahini. So I took a sharp left turn into my pantry and added a few secret ingredients.

This is now my go-to party dip for adults and kids. Serve it with pita chips or fresh veggies like baby carrots, jicama, or celery. You can even spread it on a chicken sandwich. Yum!

Easy Garbanzo Dip With Sun-Dried Tomatoes


  1. 1 garlic clove
    1⁄4 cup olive oil
    2 tablespoons water
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1⁄2 teaspoon ground turmeric
    1⁄2 teaspoon salt
    1 (15-ounce) can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained
    1 tablespoon coarsely chopped sun-dried tomatoes (from a jar)
    2 teaspoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (optional)


  1. With the food processor on, drop garlic through food chute. Process until minced. Add oil and next seven ingredients (through garbanzo beans). Process until smooth.
  2. Add tomatoes and pulse three times.
  3. Spoon dip into a serving bowl, and sprinkle with parsley.
