  • 3 cups cooked chickpeas (if using canned, rinse and drain well)

  • 2-3 cloves garlic (crushed)

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/4 cup tahini (sesame seed paste)

  • juice from 1/2 lemon

  • 1/4 cup good quality extra virgin olive oil

  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Place beans and garlic in a food processor

  • Pulse five times or until chopped

  • Add remaining ingredients

  • Pulse until smooth, scraping down sides as needed

  • Dip raw vegetables or use as a spread on bread with sprouts or roasted vegetables

You can cut a sweet pepper in half crosswise, and place one half (cut side down) into the middle of the hummus. Cut the other half into strips and stick them in the hummus all around the "octopus".

You can also add in the processor a slice or two of roasted red pepper for a little more flavor!
