Puree in blender:
4-6 cloves garlic
2 cans drained garbanzo beans aka chickpeas (reserve the liquid)
2 T lemon juice
3 T cumin (or more)
1 T paprika
1 C tahini aka sesame butter
1 T sea salt
If your blender bogs down, add 1 Tb olive oil & 1 Tb garbanzo water per bogging.
Try to not eat it by the spoonful, at least not when your kids are looking.
Serve with soup and freshly made pita bread.
