Servings: 6 people
- ¼ cup tahini
- 3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice from approximately 1 large lemon
- 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas drained and rinsed
- ½ cup sundried tomatoes soaked in olive oil reserve 4 tablespoons oil from the jar
- 2-3 garlic cloves depending on their size
- salt to taste
In the bowl of a food processor, combine the tahini and lemon juice. Process until a smooth, whipped texture forms.
To the bowl, add the chickpeas, sundried tomatoes and garlic. Allow the food processor to blend for 3-5 minutes, stopping to scrape the sides every minute or so. While it's running, add 3-4 tablespoons of water to help thin the texture. If you want to add more water just keeping in mind you may have to add more salt to compensate for flavor. Taste test to see if you prefer salt to taste and add accordingly.
