How can I make hummus at home?

ANSWER

To make hummus, put 1 can of chickpeas, 1/4 cup tahini, garlic to taste (try 1-2 cloves), 2 tablespoons olive oil, and the juice of half a lemon into a food processor or blender, and whirl until smooth. You can adjust the proportions of the ingredients to taste, depending on how strong you want the flavor and how thick you like your hummus. Start with less liquid than you think you might need. You can always add more as you blend it, but if you add too much, you've got a sauce, not a dip.
