Mistaken Chickpeas into Makeshift Hummus

Tonight I was planning on opening a can of black beans for dinner, which is my go-to dish when my fiance isn't around and I don't have too many weightwatchers points to spare.
Only problem is, I opened a can of chickpeas by accident. I was about to throw them into the fridge, but instead I came up with basil-lemon hummus:

In a food processor combine a drained can of chickpeas, two small cloves of garlic, a handful of basil, two tablespoons of olive oil, a teaspoon of lemon zest, and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Add salt and ppepr to taste and pulse to process.

Makes a delicious, garlicky, herby, lemony spread.

Eat on pepper & poppy water crackers while watching Big Trouble in Little China on Dvd.
