  1. In a pot, heat olive oil. Add crushed garlic. Cook for just under a minute.
  2. Add the can of beans with the liquid.You’ll want to crush them slightly. Depending on the texture you’d like, you can crush the beans a little more using a wooden spoon.
  3. Add the lemon juice, salt & pepper. Add tomatoes. Cook over medium heat for ten minutes, then allow to simmer for a few more minutes.
  4. Right before you turn off the heat, mix in the tahini. It gives it a wonderful flavour.
  5. Pour into bowls. You can drizzle some more olive oil on top and serve!
  6. This is traditionally eaten with pita bread. And that’s it, this is one of the best starts you can have to your day. Enjoy 🙂
