  • BasBaas Tamarind Date Sauce or BasBaas Coconut Cilantro Chutney
  • 1 can (1 1/2 cups chickpeas), drained
  • cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 roasted garlic cloves (or 1 clove fresh garlic)
  • 4 pita breads


  1. In a food processor or blender, combine the chickpeas with the garlic, lemon juice, 1/2 the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of Basbaas sauce. Start blending and drizzle in the remaining extra-virgin olive oil in a slow, steady stream and puree until very smooth.
  2. Season the dip with salt, place in a bowl. Swirl in more Basbaas sauce, top with chopped cilantro and drizzle with more olive oil, serve with warmed pita.

Pro Tip: Add a 1/2 cup of Tahini (sesame paste) for smoothness
