Hummus With Tahini


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


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.
