No tahini but we did it anyway!

8-10 cloves garlic
2 and a half to three cups of boiled chana/garbanzos/chick peas
3 tbs olive oil
1 tbs sesame seeds
salt to taste
lemon juice
water to get consistency

Toss the garlic and sesame seeds in 1 tbs oil for about 5 minutes. Put everything in a blender. Whizz. Add water to ger desired consistency. Remove, drizzle with lemon juice. Eat.


Strange pesto it is too.

2 cups of basil leaves - pack them in as tight as possible
1/2 cup of whole cashews
4 cloves of garlic
roughly 4 tbs olive oil (I just put it in to keep the consistency)

Stick in blender/food processor. Whizz till you get the consistency you want. Eat.
