hummusIngredients:
1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas
1/8 cup fresh lemon juice (~1/2 lemon)
1-2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
½-1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon cumin
2-3 tablespoon water
Dash paprika

Directions:
Add olive oil, garlic, cumin, salt and lemon juice to food processor and process for 30 seconds. Scrape the sides of the bowl and process for another 30 seconds or until garlic is minced. Drain chickpeas and rinse with water. Add half of the chickpeas to the food processor and process for 1 minute. Scrape the sides of the bowl, add the remaining chickpeas, and process for another 1-2 minutes until thick and smooth. If hummus is still too thick, turn the food processor on and slowly add 2-3 tablespoons of water (or reserved chickpea liquid from can) until you desired consistency is achieved. Scrape into a bowl, drizzle olive oil over the top and sprinkle with paprika.
