Thank you, "Oriental Pastry and Grocery" shop at 170 Atlantic Ave. in Brooklyn for offering a great selection of spices and dried goods without which I would find gathering together the ingredients for hummus an arduous task.

Ingredients for making hummus*:
2 cups garbanzo beans
1-2 tablespoons of tahini
garlic to taste-I use two cloves
lemon juice-tablespoon, or so
salt to taste
tablespoon of cumin
olive oil-drizzle in sparingly as you blend hummus. The more the oil, the more fluid the mixture.

Preparation with a food processor:
add garlic first and chop
add chickpeas and all the rest second
add more olive oil, or a bit of water to aid in mixing, if chickpeas won't easily blend together

Serve hummus in a bowl, or on a plate. Then make a small depression in the center of hummus and add a bit of olive oil. Finish by sprinkling paprika (the image shows parsley as well) over the hummus and voila!

*This recipe, adapted from the JBC's yummy recipe, isn't etched in stone. Play with the measurements as you see fit!
