Chickpeas are the base of this amazing food. I think they are the most versatile legume (besides the soybean).
Today I'm sharing the standard recipe that can be remixed to yield multiple flavors.
2 cups of chick peas (freshly soaked and boiled)
3-5 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons of sesame tahini
salt (to taste)
fresh garlic cloves (to taste)
Here's how I made it:
Step 1 - Gather all ingredients. Note the chickpeas have been soaked and boiled.
Step 2 - Blend all ingredients. Add enough water to keep the blender going. I actually prefer a food processor over a blender. I can reach the desired consistency easier.

Step 3 - Enjoy!!!

Add cilantro, cayenne pepper or chitpotle seasoning to spice it up! I've been eating hummus EVERYDAY! LOVE IT! It fills me up with out the guilt!

Peace and love!
