    1                    garlic clove
      1/4  cup           tahini (sesame paste) -- available in most
                         -- major supermarkets
                         -- or
                         speciality food stores
      1/4  cup           fresh lemon juice
    2      cups          canned chickpeas -- drained and rinsed
      1/2  cup           water
      1/4  teaspoon      ground cumin -- or to taste
      1/4  teaspoon      cayenne -- or to taste
                         salt
                         extra-virgin olive oil
                         lemon wedges
                         grilled pita triangles
 
 In a food processor or blender combine the garlic clove, tahini, and
 lemon juice and process until the mixture “whitens.” Add the chickpeas
 and process until smooth. Add water, a little at a time, to achieve
 desired consistency. Add the cumin, cayenne and salt and process.
 Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Transfer dip to a serving
 bowl, smooth top and drizzle with olive oil. Serve with lemon wedges
 and pita.
