The Secret To Hummus

I recently discovered the secret to making hummus soft is cooking the chick peas, even if they are canned.

here's what i just did:

1 can organic chick peas, cooked and drained (cook in liquid for 5 minutes, set aside liquid)
1 T olive oil
3 T organic lemon juice (recipe calls for two lemons, next time I think I will add a little more)
2 cloves garlic (recipe calls for 1 but I like garlic)
3 T tahini

mix ingredients together in food processor (blender will work), add liquid from chick peas until you thin it out how you like it (i put about 2 T in)

serve warm with pita
drizzle with olive oil

so good!

recipe is from this book:
