My first attempt at hummus.
I didn't ever think I'd say to much garlic and to much lemon.

4 to 6 small cloves of roasted garlic (4 is enough, )
1 (19 ounce) can garbanzo beans peeled
4 tablespoons lemon juice (I used a whole lemon, 1/2 of a lemon not enough whole to much 3/4)
2 tablespoons tahini
1/2 of the liquid from the garbanzo beans
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cumin
black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil

Reserve liquid from can rinse and peel beans add to food processor, blend as mixture thickens add reserved liquid a little at a time until just thin enough to blend well--add lemon juice, tahini salt cumin pepper mix well add more reserved juice if hummus is to thick. Slowly add olive oil and mix. Test thickness. You may add more reserve liquid if still to thick.
