You need a large food processor if you want to whip this up fast.
Sometimes I make a fancier version with organic dried chick peas, and that is great too!
But when time and money evaporate, this dish feeds the gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and omnivorous masses.
It looks GREAT centered on a plain old tray or very large platter, with veggies and/or chips circling it like a wreath.
I like to plonk my garlic clove into a bowl of hot water for a minute, especially for a crowd. If it was just me, I can handle and often love the powerful punch of raw garlic…up to 2 cloves!
But crowd raw garlic feeding can be tricky. You can never be sure what the lowest common denominator will be. Better to let your feisty friends crave a bit more. Don’t want to blow the head off a delicate friend!
Even with veggies and chips, this entire platter should feed a huge crowd for less than $10.
Also great to make the night before!
