Hummus (aka Hummous)

I love Middle Eastern flavors and hummus is one of my favorite dishes - it is great as an appetizer with pita chips, spread on a vegetable sandwich or smeared on a bagel for a savory breakfast. Enjoy!

1 - 15oz can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 1/2 tsp salt
5 TBS lemon juice
1/3 cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 - 1/2 cup water

Combine the beans through the olive oil in a blender or food processor. Add the water as needed to adjust the consistency to your preference (I used about 1/2 cup).
