A word from the cook
Simple and much better than 'store bought'

1/2 Can Chick Peas
Juice from 1/2 a Lemon (about 1/8 cup)
1/8 Cup Tahini Paste (well stirred)
2 Cloves Garlic (minced)
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 Tsp Cumin
2 Grinds Salt (a pinch if using iodized salt)
2 Tbsp Water (add 1 at a time and check for desired consistency; may need 3 tbsp)
Paprika for garnishing

  1. Using a food processor, combine the tahini paste and the lemon juice.   Process for 1 minute, scrape sides of bowl and process again for another minute.
  2. Add the olive oil, garlic, cumin and salt and process for 1 minute.
  3. Add 1/2 of the chick peas (about 1/4 of the can) and process for another minute, before adding the last 1/2 of chick peas.   Process for 1 – 2 minutes until smooth
  4. Add the water (1 Tbsp @ time) and process until the desired consistency is reached – you’ll have to stick your finger in and lick it :).
  5. Top with paprika to serve.
