  • 2 (15 ounce) cans chickpeas drained and rinsed – OR – 3 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup tahini OR sub white beans

  • 3-4 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1 heaping teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper – I use a few shakes of Seasonello herbal salt and pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Drain beans and reserve the liquid when you do so OR use cooked beans.
  2. Combine beans, along with the other ingredients in your food processor. Use the bean liquid or water to thin it out to your desired consistency. I use about 1/4-1/3 cup water. Adjust seasonings to your liking and enjoy on everything!
Blend ingredients in food processor until it reaches your desired consistency - use bean liquid or water to thin it out.
