Preparing hummus for a birthday beach potluck.

Simple Hummus

2 cans chickpeas

2 cloves garlic

4 tablespoons tahini

1 tsp salt

6 tablespoons quality olive oil

3 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice


Pour liquid from the chickpeas into a bowl and set aside.

Rinse the chickpeas and put in a food processor, adding tahini, garlic, salt, lemon juice, and seven tablespoons of the reserved liquid.  Blend with the food processor and add the olive oil as it runs.

Top with a few whole chickpeas and drizzle the top with olive oil, sprinkle with paprika, and garnish with parsley leaves, if you like.
