1 - 15 oz. can chick peas, drained and rinsed
3 cloves fresh garlic, pressed or finely minced
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup tahini
2 or 3 green onions, finely chopped
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Throw it all in a food processor (best) or blender and mix until the chick peas are finely chopped and everything is well blended. Add small amounts of lemon juice (a teaspoon or 2 at a time) if the mixture is too stiff.
Note: A food processor really makes short work of this.
- Variation with roasted red pepper: Add about 2 of those large, triangle-shaped red peppers (from a jar or can) to the food processor with the rest of the ingredients.
