1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas (2 cups cooked)

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon or less tahini (sesame paste)

1/4 cup chopped yellow onion

1 –2 teaspoons chopped garlic

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper

1/4—1/2 teaspoon salt



Drain and rinse the chickpeas, reserving 1/4 cup of the liquid.

Combine the chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, onion, garlic, oil, cumin, pepper and salt in a blender or food processor.  Puree until smooth, adding the chickpea liquid if needed to thin the puree.

Refrigerate for 3-4 hours before serving to blend the flavors.  Garnish with parsley, if desired.



This is a very easy recipe and tastes great every time. Once you taste it you will make it again and again. Try a cracker with hummus and a little salsa on the top; you will enjoy that too.
