Hummus with Pita Bread

recipe adapted from here
 1 15-oz can of chickpeas, drained
1/2 of a fresh lemon, juiced
1 small clove of garlic, minced finely
2 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp tahini. Note: if you don't want to buy premade tahini, here is an easy tutorial on how to make your own tahini.
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 tsp paprika

A food processor or blender

  1. Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. If it is a little dry, just add a little more lemon juice or olive oil, a teaspoon at a time, until you have the desired consistency. Add more salt and pepper if you like.
  2. Scrape out the hummus in a serving bowl.
  3. Serve with raw veggies, or spread on some pita bread.
