Ingredients

  • 1

    can chickpeas - (19 oz) rinsed, drained

  • 1

    small garlic clove

  • 3/4

    teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper

  • 1 1/2

    tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 3

    tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 3

    tablespoons torn fresh mint leaves

  • Spiced Pita Toasts (see recipe)

Directions

Slip skins from chickpeas with your fingers. Mash the garlic to a paste with kosher salt and pepper using a mortar and pestle (or mince and mash with a large knife) then whisk paste together with lemon juice and oil until well blended. Toss with chickpeas, then mash with a fork until mixture just holds together. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour for flavors to develop. Stir in mint. Serve with Spiced Pita Toasts. This recipe yields 6 servings. Cook's Note: Chickpeas can be seasoned and mashed 1 day ahead and chilled, covered. Bring to room temperature, then stir in mint just before serving.
