Ingredients

  • 16 ounces chickpeas - dried, garbanzo beans
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 10 garlic cloves finely diced
  • 2 lemons - juiced - about 8 tablespoons and under 1/2 cup
  • 1 1/4 cups tahini
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

The night before cooking:

  • Place beans in a very large pot or bowl.
  • Cover with about 12 cups of water.
  • Let soak on the counter overnight.

To prepare beans:

  • Drain beans and place in a pot that has a lid and cover with fresh water by about 3 inches.
  • Cover and bring to a boil.
  • Turn down the heat to medium and simmer, covered partially for about 2 hours.
  • Stir a couple of times during cooking time but make sure the temperature keeps at a good simmer.
  • They are finished when you can squish a bean with your fingers.
  • Drain and finely chop the beans in a food processor.
  • Add the ground beans to a large bowl and add all of the remaining ingredients - except the oil.
  • Stir very well.
  • You will not process again that is why you need to get the beans pretty fine when you chopped them before.
  • If it seems too thick for dipping add some more vegetable broth - a little at a time.  You could also add a tablespoon of oil.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature with chips and veggies of your choice.
