|1 15-ounce can||chickpeas, NOT drained|
|2-4 cloves||garlic (depending on how garlicky you prefer it)|
|2 Tbsp||fresh lemon juice|
|3/4 ?||1 tsp sea salt, depending on how salty you prefer it|
|1-2 Tbsp||extra virgin olive oil|
- Microwave undrained chickpeas and whole garlic cloves in a mixing bowl for 4-5 minutes.
- Add to blender or food processor and process with lemon juice, salt and tahini. Stream in olive oil while mixing.
- Process until smooth and creamy, scraping down sides as needed. Taste and adjust seasonings as you prefer. I find 3/4 tsp salt to be the perfect amount.
- Garnish with a little more olive oil and paprika, and serve with veggies, crackers and pita. Leftovers keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or more. It tastes even better refrigerated, as it has time to thicken up and develop in flavor.
