This tahini-chickpea dip is a great mashup of your favorite Shabbos staples.
I love having a variety of dips on my Shabbos table. chummus, techina, my favorite tomato and eggplant carpaccio (will share a hack in a few weeks to make this easier to prepare!) are pretty much the basics every week. Since I like changing it up a bit, I buy or make a couple of other dips that are more time-consuming, on a rotation to keep things exciting.
This dip that I make isn’t more time-consuming – it’s a mashup of chummus and techina – the easiest and most natural items to combine! It uses pantry ingredients that you can quickly pull together to make a dip that is familiar, but with a twist.
You can make it a few days before you need it or on Shabbos for a last minute addition.
Depending on if you use prepared chickpeas (the kind they sell in a deli container) or chickpeas out of a can, you need to adjust the salt and add more pepper to season it. The deli container chickpeas are softer and more seasoned but the canned ones work great in a pinch.
Want to hack this dip? Use prepared techina and just add chickpeas and fresh chopped parsley.
