“This is similar to what you find on the streets of Israel. It is easy and quick to make. You can vary the ingredients to taste easily.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain chickpeas.
  2. Place chickpeas, tahini, cumin, salt, lemon juice, garlic, hot sauce, and olive oil into food processor.
  3. Process, adding water and lemon juice as needed, the amount may vary. Keep them even in ratio. Personally I like the lemon flavor so do that stronger. The consistency should be a smooth dip or thin mash potatoes.
  4. When throughly mixed and at desired consistency add spinach flakes and pulse till blended.
  5. You can serve on a plate with a dip in the center and spiced olive oil poured over it or plain olive oil and sprinkled with paprika. Serve in a pita with olives, feta cheese, falafel, and cucumbers or just on crackers or Matzah.
