Ingredients

3 cups cooked chickpeas, peeled (from 1 to 1 1/4 cup dry chickpeas or from quality canned chickpeas. See recipe notes for more instructions on cooking and peeling chickpeas)

1 to 2 garlic cloves, minced

3 to 4 ice cubes

1/3 cup (79 grams) tahini paste

½ tsp kosher salt

Juice of 1 lemon

Hot water (if needed)

Early Harvest Greek extra virgin olive oil

Sumac

Directions

Add chickpeas and minced garlic to the bowl of a food processor. Puree until a smooth, powder-like mixture forms.

While processor is running, add ice cubes, tahini, salt, and lemon juice. Blend for about 4 minutes or so. Check, and if the consistency is too thick still, run processor and slowly add a little hot water. Blend until you reach desired silky smooth consistency.

Spread in a serving bowl and add a generous drizzle of Early Harvest EVOO. Add a few chickpeas to the middle, if you like. Sprinkle sumac on top. Enjoy with warm pita wedges and your favorite veggies.
