Ingredients

  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas or white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup grated manchego or pecorino romano cheese
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 ripe Hass avocado, pitted and sliced
  • 1 small cucumber, sliced or 1/2 bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 12 whole-wheat pita minis (3 inches), lightly toasted

Method

Step 1

1. Puree chickpeas, water, cheese, lemon juice, salt and red pepper flakes in a food processor until smooth, about 5 minutes. Pour in olive oil, with motor running, and process until velvety. Season with pepper, to taste.
