      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!

      I couldn't help but lick the inside of the food processor! I decided to make a few varieties by adding roasted red peppers to a batch and kalmata olives to another batch. Delicious! It is the perfect addition to making a home version of Whole Food's Athena Club wrap: Spread hummus on a spinach wrap, layer olives, feta cheese, tomatoes, roasted pepers, etc., wrap it up and enjoy.

      I changed one thing. I'm a sucker for garlic, so I put in a whole head, but I roasted it first. I sliced the garlic head in half, pour evoo into it, fit the top back onto the bottom, and the wrapped it in foil and put it in a 400 degree oven for an hour. It really enhances the flavour. The garlic comes out sweet and soft.
