From Vegan Cooking Demonstration at Bread Alone Cafe


1 15 oz. can chickpeas (garbanzos)

1/4 cup tahini

3 cloves of garlic, peeled

juice of 2 lemons

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon sea salt or Herbamare

1/2 cup parsley

Drain chickpeas, reserving the liquid. Place all ingredients except the parsley in food processor. Process until smooth. Then and add more lemon juice or seasonings if desired. Add parsley and process until it is well mixed. If needed, add some of the liquid back until desired consistency is reached. You may also add some olive oil, but it tastes good without any.

This is tasty, versatile and very high in protein. Instead of parsley try olives, scallions, or red pepper. Hummos is widely available in supermarkets now, but it is easy and fun to make your own. Use a 25 oz. can and make two versions. Costs less too. Good for parties, family meals, lunches and snacks.
