16-oz. can garbanzo beans (chick peas), or 2 cups home-cooked
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 Tbsp. olive oil or flaxseed oil
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
Paprika, sea salt, and fresh parsley to taste
1 tsp. cumin
1/4 cup tahini (sesame butter)
Drain beans and reserve liquid. Blend beans with remaining ingredients. If mixture seems dry, add some of the reserved liquid slowly to the blender to make a smooth paste. Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika and parsley.
