This goes really well with our cracker or pita bread recipes... Pita Bread recipe to follow!


1 (15 oz) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
5 Tbsp. water
1/4 c. tahini (this is sesame paste... let me save you trips to 5 grocery stores and hours searching every aisle, and tell you it's in the peanut butter section!)
3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 small garlic clove, mined
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. cumin
Pinch cayenne pepper


Put all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend til smooth, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.  Put in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until the flavors have blended, about 1 hour.  Season with salt to taste and sprinkle with fresh parsley.
