Humus

This is from BBC recipe >> http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/quickhummousandolive_71473
but it is pretty close to how I normally make it.

Ingredients
200g/7oz canned chickpeas
2 tbsp lemon juice or more
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp ground cumin
Salt
100ml tahini (sesame seed paste)
4 tbsp water
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Preparation method
1. Drain the chickpeas and rinse. Reserve a few whole chick peas for serving.

2. Combine the chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, salt, tahini, and water in a food processor, and blend to a creamy purée.

3. Add more lemon juice, garlic, cumin or salt to taste. Turn out into a dinner plate, and make smooth with the back of a spoon. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and scatter with the reserved chickpeas.

4. Sprinkle with paprika and serve with pita bread, warmed in a moderate oven for three minutes, and cut into quarters.
