 Recipe Information  
Category: Appetizers
Recipe Entered By: Heidi
Recipe Created By: Kathy P

1  (8 3/4 ounce) can  garbanzo beans
1  Tbsp  olive oil
1  tsp  white wine vinegar
1  Tbsp  peeled and coarsely chopped onion or shallot (optional)
1  clove  garlic
  pinch  cayenne pepper (optional)
2  Tbsp  tahini
  to taste  salt

Partially drain the can of garbanzo beans. I drain most of the liquid and add more oil for our taste and to get more fat content. Pour the contents along with the onion and garlic into a small food processor or blender. Process a bit until chopped. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and process until very smooth. Scrape as necessary to make sure there are no chunks. Check for salt and vinegar and adjust if necessary. If it seems too dry, add a bit more oil or some water.

I find this makes the right amount for a single batch. It doesn't keep all that long especially if you add the onion. I have a smallish food processor, so it works pretty well.

You can garnish with additional olive oil drizzled on top and some paprika. Serve as a dip for crackers, olives, pita, cucumber slices, etc. Use a sandwich spread.
