This has been a long time Favorite in our house and I love to make it for our appetizer table during the holidays. This is a quick and easy recipe that will leave your guest saying "Wow, that's homemade?!" It's delicious and something different to wow the crowd. Prepare your tastebuds for a FLAVOR FILLED dip!
1 can garbanzo beans (drained & well rinsed)
3 TBL high quality Olive oil
10-15 Green Olives*
*Note* you can add black ones for color but not necessary I just recommend plain pitted olives
1/3 cup unsalted Tahini
Juice from 1 small Lemon
2 Garlic cloves (minced)
1 or 2 tsp Dried Dill
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt (or more if need)
1/4 tsp black pepper
-Put everything in a blender or food processor then blend for 15-25 seconds or until you reach a consistency you want.
*Add 1/4 or more water if you want to thin out the dip into a dressing.
-You can top with extra olives and a light drizzle of olive oil for a pretty display!
Pair this with raw veggies like cucumber and carrots or spread on crackers.
I love to use any leftovers in a salad the next day. YUM!
