4 cloves of garlic (I use the tube of garlic just because I'm lazy and hate smelling it on my hands!)
2 cups canned chickpeas, drained with liquid reserved
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/3 cup tahini
5 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tbsp water or liquid from the chickpeas
Basically, I lump it all into the food processor and pulse it until I like the consistency.
Just remember to scrape the sides down so you don't get chunks.
That's it - enjoy!
Tahini is ground sesame seeds. This ingredient is used mostly in Mediterranean recipes. It has a rich, nutty flavor with a tad of sweetness. You can use tahini as a flavoring in homemade salad dressings, sauces for rice or pasta, or mix it with honey for a bagel/toast spread.
