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!
