1 can garbanzo beans, drained, liquid reserved
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
Salt & pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in a bowl and blend thoroughly.
Add a bit of the reserved bean liquid to reach the desired consistency: I find it takes at least 3+ tablespoons of the liquid.
You can add red pepper flakes for heat and colour, or serve in layers with a red chili sauce. Or just sprinkle with paprika before serving.
And that’s it!
It doesn’t look all that impressive in the photo, but it tastes fantastic.
I don’t miss the tahini at all!
