  • 2 cans chickpeas (15-oz) liquid reserved from one can
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice not bottled!
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp good quality sea salt

Flavoring Ideas

  • za'atar seasoning
  • smoked paprika
  • roasted red pepper (I use jarred)
  • cilantro and jalapeƱo
  • roasted eggplant and pine nuts
  • chipotle and lime
  • spinach and artichoke hearts
  • olives


  • Drain one can of chickpeas and add both cans (including the liquid from the second can into a food processor or high powered blender such as a Vitamix.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and blend. If using a high powered blender, start on low and use the stirring tool to mix while blending, or stop blending and mix periodically with a spatula, until creamy.
