Ingredients :

2 tbs tahini(I used Arrowhead organic sesame tahini)

1 ts olive oil or as desired(optional)
1 tbs harrissa paste
2 c boiled and drained garbanzo beans
salt as needed
 olive oil

1. Blend tahini and lemon juice (when you blend water and fat it gives fluffy and light texture tahini = fat, lemon = water)

2. If preferred, add olive oil, then blend a little more
3. Add the other ingredients and blend in to a smooth paste.
4. Garnish with olive oil and a sprig of parsley. 
5. Serve.
