Pull out your trusty food processor once more and add a can of drained chickpeas, 1/2 bunch parsley leaves, zest of one lemon, juice of one lemon, 1/4 tsp chili flakes, salt and pepper and 1-2 tablespoons of warm water to add if it becomes to thick.
Blend all ingredients together- then while the motor is running drizzle in about 1/2 cup- maybe less of extra virgin olive oil. Have a taste, adjust seasoning and serve with your yummiest, freshest bread. It will keep in the fridge for 5 days but it never seems to last that long.
As for Alex's next birthday, I am just hoping the green phase has passed and we can return to a decedent chocolate cake- yummm.
