Hum your favorite Hummus

This is one of my favorites for a quick lunch.

Classic Hummus
1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans) drained, but reserve 1/4 cup liquid
1 clove garlic, peeled
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp red pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1 drizzle olive oil

Place in a food processor and process until smooth, adding the liquid until you reach desired consitency. (I use all of it.)

You can, of course, eat this delicious hummus with chips or crackers or pita bread.

You can also spread it on bread and add lettuce or cucumber and tomato, maybe a couple of slices of green bell pepper and have a tastier sandwich than if you were eating rotisserie chicken.

You can even just dip the veggies in the hummus and eat it like dip.

So yummy!

Warning:  It will give you garlic breath.  I might try roasting the garlic first to minimize that a bit.  But raw garlic is good for you.
