1/4 cup chickpeas
1/4 cup liquid (I use the liquid in the chickpea can)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 to 4 cloves garlic, to taste, chopped (I used 4 and it was hot and garlicky)
1 tablespoon capers, including the brine + capers for garnish
2 teaspoons tamari, or to taste - depends on salt in beans
Romaine lettuce, to taste
croutons, to taste
pepper, to taste
1. To a blender, add chickpeas, liquid, lemon juice, garlic, capers, and tamari; blend everything except the last three items until only tiny pieces of chickpea are visible. (I used a Braun hand-blender).
2. Toss Romaine lettuce with mixture.
3. Garnish with additional capers, croutons, and pepper.
