Hummus With Tahini


INGREDIENTS:

1 (16-ounce) can of chickpeas
1/4 cup liquid from the can of chickpeas
3 to 5 tablespoons lemon juice, depending on taste
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
Handful of fresh parsley leaves, optional garnish

Instructions:
 

1. Gather the ingredients.


2. Drain the chickpeas and set aside the liquid from the can. Combine the drained chickpeas, lemon juice, sesame paste, crushed garlic, and salt in a blender or food processor. Add 1/4 cup of the reserved liquid from the chickpeas. Blend for 3 to 5 minutes on low until thoroughly mixed and smooth.


3. Place in a serving bowl, and create a shallow well in the center of the hummus.

Add a small amount (1 to 2 tablespoons) of olive oil in the well. Garnish with parsley (optional).

Serve immediately with fresh, warm or toasted pita bread, or cover and refrigerate.
