I have been trying to eat more veggies, and with this loveliness I can eat a whole lot of them and not even think twice.


2 garlic cloves
1 can of chickpeas/garbanzo beans, drained
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1/3 C tahini (sesame paste)
6 TB freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
1/3 C extra virgin olive oil

1. In a food processor with the S blade process the garlic cloves until well minced.
2. Add the chickpeas, salt, tahini and lemon juice and process until it turns into a thick paste.
3. While the processor is still running slowly drizzle the olive oil through the feed tube. Process until it is a smooth puree. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy with your favorite veggie sticks!
