2 cloves garlic
¼ cup lemon juice
14 oz (400g) canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans)—rinsed and drained
½ cup tahini
Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth, scraping the sides occasionally.
Variations: If you like a spicier hummus, add a small red chili (chopped) or a pinch of cayenne pepper, or try a little cumin for a more exotic variation.
