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.
