  1. 2 cups dried garbanzo beans
    ½ cup lemon juice, (4-5 lemons)
    ½ teaspoon salt
    1/3 – ½ cup water
    1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
    ½ cup tahini


    1. Soak the dried garbanzo beans in a large bowl with 6 cups of water for at least 3 hours or overnight.
    2. Drain, transfer to a medium saucepan, and cover with cold water to at least 2 inches above the level of the beans.
    3. Bring to a boil, and then cook gently over medium heat and cook gently until very soft, about 45 minutes.
    4. Drain the beans, add to the work bowl of a food processer and pulse with the lemon juice, salt, and 1/3 cup of water until very smooth.
    5. Add the olive oil and tahini, and process again until completely smooth and creamy.
    6. If the hummus is too thick, add a little more water.
