Yes, unfortunately you heard me correctly. My roommate was actually brave enough to venture into the cafeteria to get a close up and sample this horrifically anti-Irish feast. She reported to me that most people stuck with cereal.
makes about 1 ½ - 2 cups
½ cup dry chickpeas
2 large cloves of garlic
1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
small handful of fresh cilantro
½ tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
dash of cayenne pepper powder
salt and pepper, to taste
Put the chickpeas in a pot with 2 cups of water. Bring the water to a boil for two minutes, cover, and remove from the heat. Allow the chickpeas to soak in the hot water for 1 hour. Drain and rinse the soaked chickpeas. Combine them with 2 cups water. Simmer over medium low heat with the lid tilted to let some steam escape until all the water has been absorbed, about 1 ½ to 2 hours. Put the garlic on a microwave safe plate and microwave for 45 seconds. Combine all the ingredients into a food processor. Process until creamy. Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.
