Number of Servings: 8


    1 can (15 oz) chickpeas
    2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
    1/2 C tahini (sesame paste)
    1/2 C chopped yellow onion (I exclude this)
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
    2 tsp ground cumin
    1/8 tsp ground red pepper
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 C water
    chopped fresh parsley (optional - I mixed in 1 tsp dried and it was nice)


My blender can do one serving easily, but isn't strong enough to do a double batch.

Drain chickpeas, reserving 1/4 to 1/2 C of the liquid. (I just used water and I liked it better)
Combine the chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, onion, garlic, oil, cumin, pepper (dried parsley) and salt in a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth, adding the chickpea liquid (water) if needed to thin the puree (Mine always needs the water).
Refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours before serving to blend the flavors. Garnish with fresh parsley if using.
