The basics: What is gluten?

Gluten is a family of proteins found in wheat, barley, rye and spelt. It’s what gives flour a sticky consistency when mixed with water. This glue-like property helps gluten create a sticky network that gives bread the ability to rise when baked. It also gives bread a chewy and satisfying texture

  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 1 14.5 ounce can white beans, drained, and liquid reserved
  • 1/4 cup well stirred tahini
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper



  • Place the garlic, beans, tahini, and olive oil in a food processor. Blend and processor for 20 seconds, stop to scrape sides, then blend for 20 more seconds.
  • Add water, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper. Puree for two minutes, just keep it buzzing, to create the really really smooth texture.
  • At this point you’re ready to garnish and serve. But if you’d like it to be a little thicker, you can refrigerate for 15 minutes. Spoon into bowl and top with parsley, pine nuts, za’atar, and artichokes. Serve.
