1/3 C olive oil
1/4 C lemon juice (more to taste if you like it tangier)
3 T tahini (or if you have no tahini on hand use peanut butter)
3 cloves crushed garlic
1/4 C water
Large pinch of ground cumin
Salt and pepper, to taste
pinch of paprika
Put all ingredients in food processor and process until smooth and creamy. Serve at room temperature.
And of course, hummus goes perfect with freshly baked flax seed crackers.
