4 cups cooked chickpeas, canned, or cooked from dried
3/4 cups tahini (sesame paste)
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 teaspoons kosher salt, or to taste
1 Tbsp ground cumin
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until thick and smooth.
Check the seasonings and adjust as needed.
Spoon the hummus into a serving bowl or a plastic container to use as a dip or as a sandwich spread.
If serving as a dip, drizzle with some additional olive oil and garnish with a dusting of paprika.
