This is a flavorful plain humus. I learned how to make this about a year ago. Someone brought it to a tennis match and told me what ingredients to use. Here is what I came up with.
To food processor add 1 Can Chick Peas (drained and rinsed well), the Zest and Juice of 1 Lemon, 3 Tbl Tahini, 2 Crushed Garlic Cloves, 1/2 tsp Salt, a sprinkle of Red Pepper Flakes, Freshly Ground Pepper (white if you have it). Whirl til it looks smooth. While precessor is on, add 1/2 C Olive Oil. Garnish with a few whole chick peas and Paprika. If you like flavors, add them. I don't care for cumin, but often that is in there, too. Serve with pita chips. I will soon add a chip recipe using pita bread.
