Drain the chickpeas and add them to a food processor along with the rest of the ingredients.
Process the ingredients until smooth, adding a little water, olive oil, or drained liquid from the chickpeas to thin out the mixture if needed.
Garnish with a few whole chickpeas, a drizzle of olive oil, or a dollop of pesto, if desired.
*I used garlic powder this time instead of fresh garlic because it's a bit easier on the stomach. The pesto also contains garlic, so I didn't find I needed to add much. One clove of fresh garlic can be used in place of the powdered garlic.
