- 2 Cups chick peas, soaked and cooked or canned, drained and rinsed
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 Tbls lemon juice
- 3 Tbls hemp oil
- 3 Tbls tahini (sesame paste)
Place cooked chick peas (it’s ok if they are still warm) in the food processor along with the garlic, lemon juice and 2 Tbls hemp oil.
Process the mixture for about a minute, or until smooth. If it is too thick, just add more of the liquid.
Stir in the sesame paste, taste, and add more lemon juice/tahini/garlic as appropriate.
Spread the hummus into a shallow bowl, drizzle with hemp oil and garnish with lemon slices and minced parsley.
Serve chilled with warm pita bread and/or fresh vegetables.
