1/2 cup sesame seed paste -- (tahini)
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil
6 tablespoons lemon juice
4 cloves garlic -- peeled
2 cans garbanzo beans -- well drained
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
1 teaspoon salt -- to taste

Preparation / Directions:

Combine first five ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth. Add chickpeas and seasonings and blend to puree. Taste and adjust flavors to suit (I usually like a little more lemon.). The mixture you get before adding the chickpeas is also delicious, although extremely strong in garlic :>). Use a bit less garlic, thin with water and you've got a delicious salad dressing. Unfortunately, a very high fat salad dressing, though. Craig Claiborne's Favorites from the New York Times, vol.
