Why I Love This Recipe

Good as a dip with pita chips or fresh veggies, or as a spread on sandwiches.

Adapted from recipes learned from Israeli visitors to Illinois in the 1970s.

See separate recipes for Falafel and Tahini.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 lb cooked garbanzos
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp paprika
2 tsp sesame oil
2 T toasted sesame seed
Lemon juice to taste
Salt to taste
Olive oil
Chopped parsley


Puree or blend garbanzos, garlic, cumin, paprika, sesame oil, and sesame seeds

Blend until a smooth paste; like “not too stiff mashed potatoes.”

Add lemon juice and salt to taste.

Drizzle a little olive oil

Sprinkle with chopped parsley and paprika

Garnish with whole garbanzos.
