Lemon Garlic Hummus

Serves 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cost: $1.05
(chick peas: .65, tahini: .15, lemon juice: .10, olive oil: .10)

Note on tahini: You can usually find it at natural foods stores or in the ethnic and/or gourmet sections of your grocery store. If you've never used it before, it's a type of "butter" (as in peanut butter, almond butter) made from sesame seeds.

1 can chick peas, drained and rinsed (or about 1 1/2 C rehydrated chick peas)
3 Tbsp lemon juice
2-3 Tbsp sesame tahini
1/4 C olive oil
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp salt

Blend it all up in a blender or food processor. Serve on crackers or cut vegetables.
