hummous recipe for the person who asked...
I use home cooked chick peas (garbanzo beans) but you can use 2 large cans- rinsed and drained
juice of 1 lemon
2 cloves of garlic
3 TBS tahini (sesame paste)
a quarter cup of oil (I like a strong olive oil but choose your oil to taste)
puree your garlic with a bit of salt and the lemon juice, add your beans, tahini and start to drizzle in the oil until it reaches a consistency you like. If you want to cut down on the oil you can blend in some warm water to get the desired smoothness.
Keep covered and refrigerated with a thin layer of oil to keep it from drying out.
