Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

ingredients

  • 1 head garlic
  • One 19-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed, or 2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tahini (sesame paste)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley plus a sprig for garnish
  • Salt to taste
  • Paprika for garnish

directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Remove the loose papery outside skin from the garlic head without separating the cloves. Slice off the top 1/2 inch. Wrap in a small square of foil and roast until the garlic is very soft, about 40 minutes. Unwrap and cool slightly. Separate the cloves and peel.

Puree the garlic, chickpeas, lemon juice, soy sauce, tahini and water in a food processor. Add more or less water as necessary to make a fairly firm dip.

Transfer to a small serving bowl, stir in the parsley and season with salt. Garnish with a sprig of parsley and a sprinkling of paprika.
