What You Need:

  • 1 cup shallots, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 3/4 cup shelled hemp seeds
  • 4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, divided

  • 2-1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 to 5 tablespoons water

What You Do:
