(Use a food processor or blender)
1 - 2 cloves garlic
1 can Chick Peas/ Garbanzo Beans (drained and rinsed - reserve liquid!)
2 TBS tahini
2 TBS olive oil
Juice from 1/4 - 1/2 lemon
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp salt
Reserved chick pea liquid
Process garlic first, to mince.
Add the rest of the ingredients and process/blend for 2 - 3 minutes, adding some of the reserved liquid to make a smooth consistency.
Serve as a dip with baby carrots, celery sticks, red pepper strips, or whole grain pita pieces. Also great as a sandwich spread!
