Step 1

Put the chickpeas with 1/2 cup of their cooking liquid or water in a blender, add the garlic, oil, and tahini, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and purée for a minute or 2 until the mixture is very smooth. Add more cooking liquid, oil, or tahini as you like until the consistency is like a smooth dip or thick soup. Use immediately or refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

Transfer the purée to a medium saucepan over medium heat or use the microwave; heat through while stirring constantly. Add the spinach and the cheese. Add the lemon juice, then taste and adjust the seasoning, adding more salt, pepper, or lemon juice as needed. Pour into a baking dish top with cheese. Broil the top just until the cheese is melted, about 5 to 10 minutes under your broiler. Serve warm, garnished with parsley.
