Hemp oil chickpea spread is packed with some super delicious flavor and is very simple to whip up!
You can make it with a blender, or if you have a food processor, you can use that completely.
Let's get into the How to-
Throw some chickpeas, hemp oil, and sesame oil (or tahini) in the blender and blend until smooth. You may have to push down the mixture a few times with a spatula in between blending. If the mixture is too thick and not blending well, you can add more hemp oil, half a teaspoon at a time, until it reaches the required consistency.
Then, mix in a freshly pressed garlic clove. If you don't have a garlic press, you can use minced garlic. Lastly, add in a little salt to taste.
