Clean Eat Recipe :: Simple & Spicy Chickpea Dip

SidesWhitney Carlson4 Comments

Is it hummus? Nope - there's no Tahini! Is it loaded with stuff I can't eat if I'm eating clean? Absolutely not! Will my friends that don't eat clean like it? We certainly hope so! Is it a great appetizer to bring over to a Labor Day BBQ? Absolutely!!

What are you waiting for? This simple dip takes all of about 5 minutes to make and paired with baked Ezekiel tortilla chips (simply use a pizza slicer to cut into wedges and then place on a baking sheet and bake to a golden crisp), it's the perfect compliment to your holiday weekend festivities.

Simple & Spicy Chickpea Dip


  • 1 BPA-free can of organic chick peas, drained and washed
  • 1 large clove of garlic
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and process for approximately 45-60 seconds.

2. Enjoy!

He & She Tip: If you would like the dip to be less chunky, simply add more olive oil. It will change the fat/calories for the dip.
