Hummus is the well known dip made from chickpea. We all liked this dip , as the fresh garlic and sesame paste gives a unique taste. We thought the taste was very familiar to our palate.
1 cup garbanzo beans / chickpeas
½ cup tahini ( sesame seed paste )
Juice of 1 ½ lemon
2 cloves of garlic / 1 tsp garlic powder
salt to taste
olive oil to drizzle on top
If using canned beans you can proceed directly.
As I used dry chickpeas , I soaked overnight and cooked on my own.
Grind together chickpea , tahini , lemon juice , garlic and salt.
Pour into serving dish and drizzle olive oil.
Sprinkle a little paprika for decoration.
Serve chilled or at room temperature along with pita bread.
