Curried Chickpea Dip

This recipe is part of a 10 day cleanse that one of my coworkers is doing. It’s called the Hormone Diet and it’s purpose is to help explain all the lifestyle habits required to restore complete hormonal balance in men and women through proper sleep, diet and exercise habits. Cool, huh? So here is just one of the many recipes available in this cool book. I omitted the garam masala spice and cilantro, but feel free to make the recipe with these ingredients.
