Chickpea Dip

The weather is cold, very cold, yet my heart is warm, very warm.  It is blessed yet it is longing to feel the warmth of knowing.  It is tired yet, restless; to know peace.  It is on a journey; yet not knowing to where.  I will take this journey for I trust, I trust in Him.


29 oz. can of chick peas – drained but not rinsed
2 roasted bell peppers – any color
3 cloves of garlic
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
¼ tsp. black pepper
3-4 tablespoons of olive oil

To roast the peppers: 

Preheat Oven 350 degrees:

Wash the peppers and leave them whole.  Place on a baking and roast in oven until they become slightly charred.

Let cool then remove stem.

For the Dip:

Place the drained chick peas in a food processor with the garlic, peppers, seasonings and olive oil.

Process this mixture until smooth and fluffy.

Serve with your favorite chips or veggies.

Enjoy with Love,
