How to cook
Gather the ingredients.
Remove the chickpeas from their packing liquid. Give them a rinse.
This is the most time consuming part of the recipe. You can skip it if you like. But removing the thin clear skin on each bean will improve the texture slightly.
Peel the garlic cloves and drop them into a blender or a small food processor.
Squeeze in the juice from the lemon.
Add some salt.
Pulse to chop
Add the tahini.
Add the garbanzo beans. Blend.
Puree, adding a few splashes of water (1/4 cup or so) as needed to reach the desired texture. Stop to scrape down the edges a few times until you have a smooth blend and a nice texture. Adjust the seasoning. Feel free to add some extra treats. Some Greek olives, maybe a little paprika, or some roasted red peppers all make excellent additions.
