Hummus

I first posted a hummus recipe over two years ago, and it's still mighty tasty. Here it is with a few updates.

Simple Hummus

1 15-oz can chickpeas, drained
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup tahini
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1-2 cloves garlic (cloves can vary in size and strength!)
delicious additions: a big pinch of ground coriander, an even bigger pinch of cumin, a couple tablespoons of dried parsley, some fresh chives or basil . . . spice it up as you like

1) Dump all your ingredients into the bowl of a food processor or blender. I use my Blendtec and it works very well; if your blender is less powerful, you'll want to mince up the garlic first.
3) Process until smooth. Refrigerate in airtight container.

Smitten Kitchen's been talking about hummus too. Hers is more labor intensive and heavier on the tahini. I'm sure it is scrumptious!
