30 Days of Beans in September - Hummus

I love hummus.  My father was Arabic and it seemed like we always had hummus in the fridge.  It is easy to make and I think homemade tastes much better.  Here is the recipe:

1 can of Garbanzo beans, drained
1/4 cup tahini (My favorite is Joyva)
1/4 cup lemon juice (I always use fresh, but you can also use bottled)
1/4 teaspoon salt

Put in food processor and mix until smooth.  If it is too thick, add water until it is the consistency you like.  Add spices if you would like to such as garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, etc.  Mix.  Eat and enjoy.  Sometimes we sprinkle paprika on top when it is done.  Most of the time, I just make plain hummus without spices.  It is fun to experiment and see what you like. I usually serve this with homemade pita bread.  

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
