Whether you're looking to create an eye catching dip for entertaining, or you just need a quick easy snack; hummus is easy to make and good for you too. These days you can buy pre-packaged hummus from most supermarkets or get it fresh from your local deli. I think it’s worth the 10 minutes it takes to whip it up on your own. You can’t really make it incorrectly. I make ours with tahini, but you could use the reserved water from your chickpeas if you aren't a fan.

1 can of chick peas (garbanzo beans) drained
2 cloves of garlic
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup tahini
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt

Combine the above ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy. Sprinkle with paprika, parsley or basil, drizzle with olive oil and serve.
