1/4 cup tahini
2-4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp Kosher salt*
1-2 garlic cloves
2 tbsp olive oil
1 can no salt garbanzo beans or 1 1/2 cups cooked,dried garbanzo beans
1-2 tbsp water
1. Combine tahini and lemon juice in a food processor. Blend for one minute; scrape down sides and blend for an additional 30 seconds. Add in the salt, garlic and olive oil and blend for another minute.
2. Scrape down the sides and add in the garbanzo beans. Process for a minute or so, scrape down sides and continue to process until beans have reached desired consistency. While machine is running, slowly add in water until desired thickness is reached. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with paprika and drizzle with additional olive oil if desired. Enjoy!
*I've found that I do not need to add salt if I use canned beans.
