6          tablespoons tahini

3          tablespoons fresh lemon juice

½ to ¾ teaspoon sea or kosher salt, or to taste

¼         teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

¼         cup extra virgin olive oil, more if desired

13         cup water (plus more if needed)


1.   Insert the chopping blade into the work bowl. Add garlic to bowl and process for 10 to 15 seconds; scrape bowl. Add chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, salt and pepper; pulse 10 to 12 times. Add the oil and process until almost completely combined. Add the water and process until very smooth. If a thinner consistency is desired, add more water. Adjust seasoning to taste.
