- 2 15 ounce cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- Juice of 1 small lemon (seeds removed, pulp optional)

- cheaply in a middle eastern specialty shop)
- 2 small or one large clove of garlic, finely grated
- Water to adjust consistancy

1. Drain and wash the chickpeas, add to blender or food processor.
2. Add grated garlic, olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, and about 2 tablespoons of water.
