Recipe Notes

*For a sweeter version, use 1 whole bulb Black Garlic in place of Dehydrated Minced Garlic. If using Black Garlic, no need to soak it first; simply peel and mash all cloves and add to food processor with garbanzo beans.

Grated zest of ½ lemon

¼ cups fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon)

¼ cups water

1 (15 oz.) can garbanzo beans, drained
