Delicious Hummus!

This hummus is delicious.  We use it regularly for dipping and in sandwiches.  My husband and eat pita pockets (the recipe is on this blog) with hummus spread inside.  Add a few slices of tomatoes and some chopped romaine lettuce.  So YUMMY!


2 cans garbanzo beans, drained (save liquid)
3 Tbsp tahini (tahini is a sesame seed paste and can be found in the ethnic section of your grocery store)
5 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp finely chopped garlic
1/2 - 3/4 cup bean liquid
1/4- 1/2 tsp cumin

Mix all ingredients in a blender or food processor.  Use just enough bean liquid to get it to the consistency you want.  It should be like a semi-thick spread.
