Hummus (Really excellent hummus!)

I got this recipe from a friend. It is wonderful!

This makes a lot of hummus. Recipe should be halved unless serving at least 40 or more as an appetizer.


2 tablespoons garlic — minced
3 15.5-oz can garbanzo beans
1 cup Tahini
3 large lemons
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon cumin seed — ground
1 teaspoon cayenne paprika — to taste

Drain 2 of the cans of garbanzo beans, reserving liquid.

Place the beans in a food processor along with the undrained beans and all other ingredients except the paprika. Blend until it is a smooth paste. You can adjust the consistency with reserved liquid.

Remove to a serving dish and top with paprika and some extra cayenne pepper. Cover tightly and chill before serving.

Serve with pita or other flat bread.
