This Middle Eastern dip is mainly served as an appetizer, accompanied by pita bread. It can also be served as a side dish to a main meal. Garbanzo beans can be found in most supermarkets. They are sometimes called chickpeas or ceci beans. Tahini is a sesame seed paste found in health food and mid-eastern groceries. You can garnish your serving bowl with a few reserved beans, parsley, olive oil, and a sprinkle of paprika.

15 1/2 ounces garbanzo beans - drained
3 tablespoons tahini
3/8 cup lemon juice
1 garlic clove
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons water

Place all ingredients in a blender. Puree until the mixture is transformed into a smooth paste. If the consistency is too thick add more water. (I prefer to add more lemon juice, but most people don't like the high acidity).
