Very easy!, Member dixie67stang

As the other maker suggested, drain the chickpeas! I would reserve a few tbsp of the liquid if you don't want to use as much olive oil. I added a bit of sea salt and garlic powder for a real nice kick up to the flavor. :) Delicious and easy to make in the food processor!
