I don't usually care for hummus, but when I tried this at my friend's I couldn't stop eating it. It's important to use fresh lemons, extra virgin olive oil, and high quality garbanzo beans--you don't want ones that start out crunchy. I served this with Lavosh bread that was brushed with olive oil, sprinkled with salt and pepper and baked at 350F for 8-10 minutes.
- Blend first four ingredients with juice from 2 lemons in food processor until smooth and creamy, about 5 minutes.
- Add blend in remaining ingredients starting with 4 cloves of garlic.
- Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
