  • 1 cup chick peas ( garbanzo beans) Home cooked (preferable) or canned.

  • 3 tbsp filtered water
  • 1 clove garlic


  • Put chick peas, lemon juice, water and into a blender or food processor.
  • Mince the garlic and add it to the mixture in the blender/food processor ( The food processor is better if you are making multiple batches at one time).
  • Blend until it forms a smooth paste.

If the consistency is too thick or too thin, add a little water or some extra chick peas as appropriate.
