1 can of chickpeas/garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

3/4 cup chopped Bubbies Kosher Dill Pickles & 2 TBSP of brine

1 garlic clove, chopped

1/4 cup tahini

1 TBSP fresh dill, minced

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 TBSP lemon juice

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

optional: cilantro and pine nuts to garnish


  1. In a food processor, combine chickpeas, half of the chopped pickles, brine, garlic, tahini, dill, salt, and lemon juice. Scrape the sides down and add a tsp of warm water if the mixture is too thick to blend.
  2. With the food processor on low, slowly drizzle in olive oil. Transfer to a bowl and garnish with remaining chopped pickles, chopped cilantro, and roasted pine nuts. Serve with pita, veggie sticks or chips.
