Chickpeas are an exciting food that can add substance to an already-established dish, or, given the opportunity, can rise to the challenge of leading a meal. Inspired by Indian curry flavors and Greek hummus textures, this recipe presents a delicious chickpea curry spread that you’ll find both new and comfortably familiar.





Chickpea Curry Spread


  • 1 cup chickpeas, cooked (about 8 oz.)
  • Handful of cilantro
  • Handful of raisins
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Lightly chop cilantro, removing stems (most of the nutrients and flavor are in the leaves).
  2. Combine all ingredients in a Magic Bullet cup and blend.

Enjoy as a side dish, appetizer or snack. Best if served with small pieces of bread, crackers or carrot sticks. Or add this spread to a wrap, along with lettuce, tomato and other garnishes and enjoy it for lunch!
