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!

You can never predict what will sell at the shop. I put out a fake fern yesterday, and it promptly sold. Granted it was only four bucks, but...
