This is one of my all time favorites. A bit labor intensive but well worth it!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups soaked chickpeas (canned will do as well, though the consistency will be thinner)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 fresh jalapeño pepper
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic
  • 2 TBL pesto
  • 2 TBL olive oil
  • 1 tsp.+- Himalayan sea salt

Here’s How

  1. Roast bell pepper and jalapeño in oven at 400 degrees until skins are blistered (about 20 min on each side).
  2. When cool enough to touch, peel and seed peppers.
  3. Toss peppers in blender with remaining ingredients (excluding salt).
  4. Season with salt to taste.
  5. Serve with choice veggies or crackers. Delicious!
