Our friend Jill Powell gave us this recipe years ago. It is the best hummus recipe! We sometimes add artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red pepper, or olives, but it is wonderful just as it is. The hummus in the photograph is with sun-dried tomatoes.
The ingredients are as follows:
 1 can chickpeas, drain liquid.  (we cook our bean from dried and freeze them so there is no liquid)
1/4 cup tahini (we process our own because there is no added oil but it can be bought at the grocery store)
2-3 cloves of garlic
zest and juice from 1 lemon
1/2 tablespoon cumin (to me the cumin makes it outstanding)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup olive oil (if using 1/4 cup of artichoke, roasted peppers, or sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, we use 1/8 cup of olive oil and add more water as needed)
up to a 1/4 cup water as needed

Directions: place all the ingredients in a food processor. Process until it is a smooth texture. Add water to make it the consistency you like.

Place in a container and top with olive oil and paprika

Serve with your favorite veggie or pita or cracker. It is also wonderful on a baked potato!!!
