- 2 Tbsp. ground sesame seed or tahini (I normally toast my own seeds under the broiler and grind them the best I can)
- 2 gloves garlic
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. cumin
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 Tbsp. lemon juice*
- 1 15 1/2 ounce can chick peas**, drained (save the juice)
- 1/4 cup of the juice from the chick peas
Put all into blender (except the juice from the peas) and blend until smooth (or use a hand blender and slowly add ingredients and water). For more moisture, add some of the extra chick pea juice or water until you get the thickness you like.
*The lemon juice makes this a little zesty. If you like it blander (for children), you can use a little less.
**Or 1 cup dried chick peas, reconstituted per package directions
