A variation of this recipe was passed down to me from my Lebanese-Canadian mother. Instead of thinning it out with water we use a good quality light extra virgin olive oil, it gives the hummus a smooth, creamier texture. I use 1 tablespoon of tahini to one can of chick peas otherwise the tahini flavour is too overpowering, and no cumin, just lots of lemon juice and minced garlic does the trick, and then garnish with a sprinkle of paprika and a sprig of parsley!
