- 1 can (large) of chickpeas (save some of the water from the can)
- 1 half lemon (squeeze for lemon juice)
- Salt to taste
- Olive oil (1/2 cup)
- Tahini Paste (2/3 cup)
- 1-2 cloves of garlic
Set up your Cuisinart mixer and add garlic and pulse until the garlic is nicely minced. Next, add your chickpeas (without water) and tahini and get your mixer going on automatic. Add the olive, salt, and lemon juice. If the mixture is too thick, then add some of the chickpea liquid.
NOTE: The key to hummus (as is the case with any recipe) is to constantly taste the mixture!
