Ingredients

3 can(s)
chick peas
4-6 Tbsp
tahini
2-4 Tbsp
olive oil
1 large
lemon
1 Tbsp
cumin
1-2 large

2 Tbsp
garlic, minced.

Step-By-Step

1Drain two cans of the chick peas completely; drain third can but save the liquid.

2Put all cans of chick peas--don't use reserved liquid--into Cuisinart and pulse. Add increments of liquid til it's the texture of cooked oatmeal. Add liquid slowly! This should not be watery.

3Add tahini & olive oil FIRST. Very important or hummus will seize up. Pulse again. Add lemon & cumin & garlic. Salt to taste.

4Scoop hummus out of Cuisinart bowl into small shallow bowl(s). Drizzle more olive oil & sprinkle with cumin.
Serve with tomatoes, cucumbers, pita bread.
