A tasty smooth bean paste made of chick peas as a dip for bread and veggies. We love it! A tasty smooth bean paste made of chick peas as a dip for bread and veggies. We love it!
Number of Servings: 6


    1 can chick peas, reserve liquid
    3 cloves (or more to taste) garlic
    5-10 sprigs fresh parsley
    1 lemon juiced and grated zest
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp coarse salt
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp paprika
    4 Tbsp tahini
    3+ Tbsp good olive oil


You will need a pretty good food processor for this. Peel garlic cloves and mince in food processor. Add drained chick peas, parsley, and half the reserved liquid from the peas. Blend until starting to get smooth. Add lemon juice and zest, pepper, salt, cumin, paprika and tahini. Blend until combined. While running food processor, drizzle in olive oil until mixture starts to look smoother, almost like mayo. Usually takes me about 2 - 4 Tbsp. Continue blending until creamy. Scrape out of food processor into a bowl. You can eat it right away, but it tastes better if you let it sit in the fridge overnight first. Cover with wax paper or plastic wrap pushed down and touching the surface of the hummus. Makes 6 - 8 generous servings. Serve with pita bread, fresh veggies, more parsley, feta cheese... Feel free to adjust lemon juice, garlic, parsley and spices to your taste. Can also add roasted red peppers, cilantro, sun dried tomatoes, or chili powder for other flavors. If you do not have tahini, try using unsweetened natural peanut butter. Not exactly the same, but tastes pretty good!
