Basic Hummus (A Little Bit Crunchy A Little Bit Rock and Roll)


1 (16 oz) can chick peas, drained, liquid reserved

3 to 4 tablespoons reserved liquid

3 to 5 tablespoons lemon juice*

1 1/2 tablespoons tahini

2 cloves garlic

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons olive oil


1. In a food processor, give the garlic a whirl until it's chopped finely.  Add the chick peas, a little of the reserved liquid, and remaining ingredients.  Process until smooth. Add more liquid to thin as needed

2. Chill.

*I prefer a lot of lemon juice in my hummus.  Some like it heavier on the tahini.  Add more of whichever to suit your taste.
