Basic Creamy Hummus

I love hummus especially since I grew up in the Middle East. It's so easy to make, so nutritious either as a snack or even as a spread. Can be made in minutes!

19 oz can Chickpeas or Garbanzo beans (reserve a few)
Juice of a Lemon 
2 tbsps Olive oil
4 cloves Spiced Garlic
3 tbsps Tahina (sesame paste)
Salt and white pepper
Water as required

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and start to blend together

As water as required and blend till the hummus is smooth

Serve on a platter, covered with Olive oil, a pinch of paprika, cumin, oregano and sumac.

Garnish with reserved chickpeas and eat with pita bread.
