Makes 4 main-dish servings

For the tahini sauce:

1 cup ground tahini

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

¾ teaspoon ground garlic

¾ teaspoon ground cumin

Salt to taste

To finish:

3 medium cucumbers

2 medium tomatoes

¼ cup of chopped red onion

½ cup homemade croutons

3 cups warm garbanzo beans

Chopped parsley for garnish

Olive oil and lemon juice to taste

2 hard-cooked eggs

1. Make the tahini sauce by combining all ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulsing to completely incorporate. Makes about 1¼ cups. Set aside.

2. Cut the cucumbers, tomatoes and onion into a fine dice, place in a salad bowl and toss with the warm beans. Add the tahini sauce as desired and toss. Taste and add olive oil and lemon juice as needed. Sprinkle parsley on top, then grate on the egg. Serve immediately.
