- 1 can chickpeas aka garbanzo beans

- juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 2 cloves garlic minced; or more to suit your taste!
- 2-4 Tbsp olive oil or oil of choice
- 1 Tbsp cumin
- paprika to taste
- water to thin; as needed
If you are using dried beans, soak them in water overnight. Rinse them and put them in a pot with new water and add 1tsp of baking soda. Bring to a simmer and allow to cook for about 45 minutes until you can smoosh them with your finger. Drain the excess water, allow to come to room temperature and add to food processor.
Pulse the chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic and tahini until smooth; stopping to scrape the sides of the processor as needed; adding the oil as you go.
Add your seasonings, and add water to achieve your desired consistency.
Serve with pita bread or fresh veggies.. or however you want!
