Makes 3 cups
- 1 3/4 cups garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
- 6 cups water
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled

Wash garbanzo beans (chickpeas) and soak in cold water for 24 hours. Place garbanzo beans, with their soaking liquid, in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer for 2 hours, skimming off any debris that may surface. Drain garbanzo beans, reserving 1/4 cup liquid, and rinse with cold water.
Using a foodprocessor, pulse the chickpeas a few times, then add garlic, tahini, spices, salt, lemon juice and olive oil. Puree until smooth, about 1 1/2 minutes. Taste and and adjust seasoning. Serve drizzled with additional olive oil and pita chips.
