1 lemon, juiced

1 teaspoon ground cumin

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1/2 cup tahini paste

  2. Put the beans into the bowl of a food processor. Add the lemon juice, cumin, garlic, tahini paste, and salt and pepper, to taste. Turn the processor on and slowly pour in the olive oil. Process until smooth and thick.
