Dietitian’s tip:

For a different taste, you can substitute white, butter or lima beans for chickpeas and 1 teaspoon toasted ground cumin seeds for the paprika.

Using a blender or food processor, puree the chickpeas. Increase the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, pepper, paprika, tahini and parsley. Blend properly.

Increase the reserved liquid, 1 tablespoon at a time, right up until the mixture has the regularity of a thick distribute.
