Ingredients

  • One 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and liquid reserved
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame chile oil
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup tahini
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Cut vegetables or pita bread, for serving

Directions

Place the chickpeas, sesame chile oil, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and tahini together in the bowl of a food processor and blend until smooth.

Sesame Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Sesame Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
