1 (15 oz.) can garbanzo beans, drained
½ cup tahini
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tbs olive oil
1/3 cup water
4 cloves garlic, optional
1 tsp cumin
Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Combine the beans, tahini, lemon juice and olive oil in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
  2. Add water a little at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
  3. Add the garlic and cumin, and then salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Serve with pita.

As an alternative, substitute garbanzo beans with 2 cans black beans, lime juice instead of lemon juice, and ¼ cup cilantro.
