A Quick and Easy Recipe. Great as a Dip, Appetizer or Snack!
Drain chick peas into cup and save. Put chick peas, garlic, lemon juice and the tahini paste into a blender. Add about 1/4 cup of the juice from the chick peas, BLEND. If needed, add more chick pea juice, in small amounts, while blending, to get the right consistancy. Dip should be a little on the thick side and smooth - not too thick and not too liquidy. Should have a consistancy like any other dip! Spoon out into a dip bowl and sprinkle red pepper and parsley on top. *Red Pepper-optional. If you like the zing then put it on!
Serve with potato chips, vegetables or the best is arabic bread (otherwise known as pita pockets)
