  • 1 15-15.5 oz) can of garbanzo beans
  • 1 8 oz jar of roasted red peppers
  • 3 Tbs of lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp of salt
  • 2 Tbs of tahini


  • Drain the garbanzo beans and empty the entire can into a food processor or a blender. Add the roasted red peppers and blend for 15-20 seconds.
  • Add in remaining ingredients and mix until it becomes a thick sauce/puree, with a fluffy consistency, and smooth.
  • Transfer mixture to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
  • Garnish with parsley flakes, or a sprinkle of cayenne pepper, if desired.


  1. Garbanzo beans and Chickpeas are the same thing so you can use either label.
  2. Tahini can be easily found in your local grocer, usually in the ethnic section.
  3. This needs to be refrigerated after each time you serve it to preserve it's freshness.
  4. You can absolutely freeze this recipe, see my notes above on how to store.
  5. This can be served with chips, pita bread, pretzels, vegetables, etc.
  6. If you do not have a food processor a blender will work just fine.
