2 cups canned garbanzo beans, drained
1/3 cup tahini (in the Mediterranean food isle, it's essentially sesame seed paste)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic, halved
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 water (add to desired consistency)
- Place the garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, salt and garlic in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Transfer mixture to a serving bowl.
- Sprinkle with paprika, parsley or your favorite spice.
