Popular chick-pea dip popular throughout the Middle East. Today it is extremely popular in Israel and the US as well. The recipe is deceptively simple – it may take a few tries to get the mix just right. There are several tehina recipes on JRT. Goes well with pita bread, though at home we often ate it with fresh French bread.

adding the oil slowly will make it creamier (like when you make mayonnaise. I add more tehina about 250-300 g (8 to 10 oz.)

I was taught to add the olive oil very slowly while the chickpeas and other ingredients are being blended in the food processor.
