  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • juice of one lemon

  • fresh vegetables and pita bread for serving


  • Add the tahini, cold water, olive oil, cumin, salt, garlic, and lemon juice to a food processor and blend until smooth. Add the chickpeas and blend for several minutes, until completely smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add 1-2 tablespoons of water to thin it out a little.
