  • 240 g chickpeas (I use tinned but you could use dried and soaked ones)
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 100 g tahini paste
  • 1 lemon juice only
  • 2 drops lemon essential oil I use doTerra's. If you don't have this add the juice of another lemon
  • reserved chickpea water
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place the chickpeas, garlic, tahini paste and lemon juice into a small food processor and blend with a little of the reserved chickpea water

  2. Stop and scrape down the sides of the food processor and add more chickpea water to reach the desired consistency

  3. Remove from the food processor into a bowl and stir through the lemon essential oil

  4. Add salt and pepper to taste
