I cannot guarantee you won’t turn into squash after eating all this. I know I did. and yet I wonder why people keep following me with giant knives…

15 ounces (1 can, 425 g) cooked garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 big clove garlic, grated

2 tablespoons (30 ml) fresh lemon juice
1 generous tablespoon (6 g) curry powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, to taste

Place all the ingredients in your food processor or blender, process until smooth, scraping sides with a rubber spatula once or twice.
Serve chilled, at room temperature, or even warm, with crackers, pita bread, chips…

Yield: about 3 cups


No picture for what follows: I was too hungry and too greedy for it. but you’ve seen scrambled tofu before, haven’tcha?

    I also like pumpkin hummus and pumpkin scramble, though I tend to throw in chuncks of baked squash into the scramble instead of puree. Both of yours look wonderful!
