This is one of those easy dip recipes that can be throw together rather quickly. You can skip the cayenne pepper if you wish; its still yummy.
- Place the garlic, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt in a food processor or blender and puree until the garlic is finely chopped (if preparing by hand, finely dice and mash the garlic, then mix with the other ingredients).
- Add the chickpeas and continue mixing to a smooth paste.
- Garnish with the cayenne pepper.
- Served at room temperature or chilled.
