1/2 cup chickpea flour (sifted)
1 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
1-2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp dijon mustard (optional)
1 clove garlic crushed
1/2 cup sunflower/ olive oil (not strong tasting)
Dash black pepper
Heat the water in a pan to boil
Remove from heat and add in the flour + salt whisking as you add.
It will look lumpy don’t worry. Place back on low heat and continue whisking for a couple more minutes until its thickened to a paste. Take off heat and allow to cool to room temp. It may still have a few lumps in but thats ok because the blender will smooth it out.
Chill in the fridge until cold.
Place in the blender along with 1 tbsp lemon juice, mustard and garlic, blend to combine. Then gradually add in the oil 1 tbsp at a time until thick, smooth and creamy. Taste test and add more lemon or salt. Finish with a sprinkle of black pepper.
Use as dipping sauce for fries, topping for tacos or salad. It pretty much goes with anything its so delicious!!
