This makes a great dip or sandwich spread. Sometimes I make it with falafel, but that always seems like a lot of work. Everything should be adjusted to your personal taste. The chickpeas are the main ingredient. Everything else is for flavor. You can substitute peanut butter for the tahini if you have to. Plain, unsweetened is closest. The last time I made this I used garlic and garlic scapes.
Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) cooked or canned, reserve juice
Tahini (sesame seed paste)
Olive oil (optional)
Put everything except the bean juice in the food processor and process until smooth. Add bean juice if needed to get the right consistency. You may want to taste it a few times and adjust your ingredients.
You can get really creative with this and add other stuff for a different effect. Some people like it with jalapenos or olives mixed in.
