Directions:

  1. Place the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet, and preheat over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, onion, red and green peppers, and oregano, and stir to mix. Cover and cook, stirring frequently, for about 4 minutes, or until the vegetables begin to soften. Add a little broth if the skillet becomes too dry.
  2. Place the chickpeas, lemon juice, broth, and black pepper in the bowl of a food processor. Add the vegetable mixture, and process, scraping down the sides occasionally, for about 2 minutes, or until the ingredients are well mixed and the dip has reached the desired consistency. Add a little more broth if needed.
  3. Transfer the spread to a serving dish, and serve at room temperature with whole grain crackers, raw vegetables, Parmesan Pita Crisps.
