2 cup canned chick peas, drained and rinsed
1 cup tahina paste
3 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup fresh lemon juice (at least)
½ cup cold water
½ tsp ground cumin, lightly toasted
Chopped cilantro or parsley for garnish
1. Puree the chick peas in a food processor, and then add tahina paste and garlic and process until they are blended in.
2. Through the opening at the top of the processor, with the motor running, pour in ½ cup of cold water and ½ cup of lemon juice. Consistency should be like pudding or mayonnaise.
3. If the mixture is too thick to spread, add more water or juice 1 tbsp. at a time.
