2 cups of cooked gar­ban­zo beans

3 gar­lic cloves, peeled

12 tsp salt

13 cup tahi­ni (sesame paste)

juice of 1 lemon

14 to 12 cup of water, if need­ed

small diced toma­to, for gar­nish



1.  Place all ingre­di­ents, except for the toma­to, into a food proces­sor and mix until creamy.  If need­ed, grad­u­al­ly add water.  It should be a smooth, not-to-thick con­sis­ten­cy.

2. Gar­nish with diced toma­to and some olive oil.   Serve with baby car­rots, cucum­ber sticks or baked pita chips.
