  • cups cooked chickpeas - slightly overcooked drained and rinsed
  • cup smooth tahini (I prefer Trader Joe's organic tahini or Soom)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice more to taste
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 5 tablespoons water or as needed to blend
  • paprika red pepper flakes, or parsley, for garnish


  • In a blender or food processor, place the chickpeas, tahini olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and salt. Continue to blend until smooth, adding water as needed to blend, and/or to reach your desired consistency.
  • Transfer to a serving plate, top with a bit more olive oil and desired garnishes. Serve with toasted pita bread and your favorite veggies, as desired.
