A hummus version I learned from my mom with lemon juice and no olive oil, unless you drizzle some on top for decoration.
||Crush garlic in a mortar and pestle with the dash of salt. (Best alternate would be a garlic press but in case you do not have either mincing would work also).
||Pour out juice from can of chick peas (garbanzo beans) into a container to use later.
||Squeeze two lemons and store in separate container.
||Combine chick peas, half of the chick pea juices, half of the lemon juice, the garlic and the tahini (sesame butter) in a food processor.
||Blend. Add more tahini, lemon, or chick pea juices to desired taste and consistency. Sometimes it takes a little juggling :)
||Note: a serving is approximately 2 tablespoons.
