This recipe is an example of how with a little creativity, you can make a recipe with a replacement ingredient.
1 can of chickpeas
1 cup ricotta cheese
seasonings: salt, pepper, garlic powder, olive oil
pan fry the chick peas with olive oil and seasonings. Throw it in a food processor and blend - VOILA!
Yummy.... it's a good fat :)
UPDATE: Okay, I just tried this with eggplant instead of ricotta and it's a hit! It's so creamy... and no, it's not like babaganoush. Note: I don't like more than a tsp of tahini in my humous, if any at all, but add it if you like it!
