1 can chickpeas, (aka garbanzo beans) drained and rinsed
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp minced garlic (I've used Epicure's toasted garlic, it works well)
1-2 tablespoons water
Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Tweak the ingredients a little to suit your taste! Serve with warm pitas and fresh veggie sticks.
