Traditional Middle Eastern Hummus

Healthy, Fresh Mediterranean Meal

Serves 4-6

16 ounces of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), soaked in water overnight
1 cup of lemon juice or juice of 2 fresh lemons
3 Tablespoons tahina paste (can be found in an ethnic food aisle)
2 garlic cloves, crushed
salt, to taste  
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2  teaspoon parsley, finely chopped

1. Place the chickpeas into fresh water (~1 cup) for at least one hour and up to overnight (be sure to leave in the refrigerator). 

2. Place the chickpeas into a blender (or food processor). Add the lemon juice, tahina paste, garlic, salt and enough of the water liquid (that the chickpeas were in) to obtain a soft creamy consistency.

3. Place hummus onto a flat plate.

4. Garnish with olive oil, paprika and parsley.

5.  Serve with warm pita bread or pita chips for dipping.
