Mom's Special Hummus
1 can (16 oz) garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoon tahini
2 to 4 tablespoon lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon cumin (more to liking)
1 teaspoon tamari (strong soy sauce) or 1/4 teaspoon salt
Drain garbanzo beans, saving liquid. Place beans and other ingredients in blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, adding 1-2 tablespoon of saved liquid if necessary.
Thin to desired consistency. Best if refrigerated several hours or overnight to allow flavors to blend.
Serve with pita wedges and vegetables.
