Hummis bi tahini

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Sesame Seed Paste --
\N \N (tahini)
⅓ cup Water
¼ cup Olive Oil
6 tablespoons Lemon Juice
4 \N Cloves Garlic -- peeled
2 cans Garbanzo Beans -- well
\N \N Drained
½ teaspoon Ground Cumin
1 teaspoon Coriander Seeds
\N \N Salt -- to taste

Combine first five ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth. Add chickpeas and seasonings and blend to puree. Taste and adjust flavors to suit (I usually like a little more lemon.).

The mixture you get before adding the chickpeas is also delicious, although extremely strong in garlic :>). Use a bit less garlic, thin with water and you've got a delicious salad dressing. Unfortunately, a very high fat salad dressing, though.
