3 Tbs freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup water
6 Tbs Tahini
2 Tbs Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1 (14 oz) can of chick peas, or 2 cups cooked chick peas
1 small garlic clove, chopped or grated
1/2 tsp sea sat
1/4 tsp cumin

Combine lemon juice and water in a small bowl, whisk together.  Combine olive oil and tahini in a separate bowl and mix together.  Process chick peas, salt and cumin in a food processor until well ground.  With the machine running, add lemon juice/water mixture in a steady stream through the feeding tunnel of the food processor.  Process for 1 minute.  With the machine still running add the tahini/olive oil mixture, continue to process until creamy.  Chill and enjoy.

To change up the flavour alternate adding parsley, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, roasted eggplant!
