2 15oz. cans of Chickpeas
10 cloves of garlic, peeled
1/4 cup olive oil
3-5 tbsp of lemon juice
1 Tsp Cumin
1/4 cup tahini
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp fresh dill
warm water


1. Place garlic cloves in a small saute pan and add olive oil to just cover. Heat on medium-low heat to poach garlic until golden brown, turning once 15-20 min. Set aside.

2. To a 14 cup food processor, add rinsed chickpeas, tahini, cumin, salt, dill, 2 TB lemon juice, 2 TB warm water and poached garlic and poaching oil. Blend on low speed until smooth. Add salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste. Extra warm water can be added 1 TB at a time, to reach desired consistency. Serve at room temp with pita chips.
