Sun-dried tomato, chickpea and basil spread

This is what I used, feel free to play with amounts, use different beans or perhaps add garlic.

lemon juice (I used a squirt of bottled juice, but about 1/2 a fresh lemon I think)
2 tbsp tomato puree
14 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped up
2 tbsp flaked almonds (ground almonds would be better)
12 basil leaves
1 can chickpeas
ground flax seed (started off with about 1 tbsp and add more to thicken if necessary)
black pepper to taste

Add all ingredients to the food processor and whiz until desired consistancy, adjusting quantities as required. This does make quite a bit, so if its only for one person, reduce quanties to perhaps half and make a chickpea salad or something with the other chickpeas.
