HUMMUS, (to die for)

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.

This is my (Mimi's) version of hummus...not totally authentic, but we love it.
