This is a fantastic and tasty snack for anyone. My toddler loves to dip things in it or to have it as a snack on a tortilla or cracker. It’s great as a dip for vegetables and crackers, or used as a spread on wraps and sandwiches.
Original recipe makes 12 servings
1 (14 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained, liquid reserved
2 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
1 lemon, juiced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup bottled roasted red bell peppers
- Place the garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and red peppers in the bowl of a food processor. Add 2 tablespoons of the reserved juice from the garbanzo beans. Pulse until the mixture is smooth, scraping the sides and blade to mix completely. Cover, and refrigerate until ready to use.
