Prep Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 8


  • 2 cups chickpeas precooked in pressure cooker
  • 1/3 cup chickpea water left over from pressure cooker
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon cumin


  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender. It is easier to do it in several, smaller batches.
  2. Once blended, stir in a mixing bowl and taste.
  3. Add more seasonings if desired.
  4. Spread on a serving platter and sprinkle paprika or chili powder and a little olive oil over whole plate.


Use canned beans to save time. Try the same recipe with different kinds of beans such as navy beans or black turtle beans.
