2 15-oz cans of garbanzo beans drained and rinsed. Or 2 cups cooked homemade beans (rinse one cup of dry garbanzo beans and let soak overnight. Drain and rinse. Cover soaked beans with water, and cook in crock pot on high until tender, about 7 hours.)
2/3 cup tahini (roasted, not raw)
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (plus lemon zest for garnish)
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp. sea salt
Chopped fresh parsley for garnish
Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until desired consistency. Serve with toasted Pita bread. Excellent on Falafels. Enjoy!
