What in the word is an Ilya? Well it’s someone’s name. My cousins old boyfriend actually. I made up this recipe when she was visiting and she joked that we should name them after her boyfriend. I haven’t thought of a new name yet. Pretty funny huh?! Well if you have an idea for a name feel free to leave me a comment.
This is so easy and sooo yummy!
2-3 c. cooked garbanzo beans You can use canned but you must cook them an additional 15 min if you do. Cooked from dry is sooo much better though.
1/2 c Olive oil
1/2 c Balsamic Vinegar This really is to taste. I didn’t measure as usual.
4 tsps minced garlic
1/2 red pepper chopped small
Heaping 1/2 c Romano or Parmesan cheese grated.
Salt & Pepper
Mix all together and let sit in fridge for at least 1 hour but next day even better.
Serve over toasted baguette slices, crackers or with veggies like jicama.
One of my very favorite recipes! Great as an appetizer, snack or a side for dinner.
