Today I have a simple appetizer recipe I would like to share with you. It is an easy recipe that can be put together in about 5 minutes, if you have the ingredients in your kitchen.
2 cloves garlic (chopped, I use the jar variety)
1 15 oz can garbanzo beans
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon Tahini (made with sesame seeds, found in the international section of a market)
1 teaspoon olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste
Put the ingredients into a blender.
Mix all of the above until smooth. The consistency should be creamy and blended.
I like to add a little Tapatio hot sauce to spice it up, but it tastes good without it too. I like to serve it with pita chips or sliced carrots, peppers and celery. It is a great appetizer to pull together when you have unexpected company or just need something quick.
What is your go to recipe when you need a quick appetizer?
