Spring-y Hummus


1 can cooked garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed under hot water to warm
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon tahini
1/2 tablespoon chopped garlic (more or less to taste)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


Place all ingredients in a food processor, and process until smooth or the consistency you like. Serve it warm or chilled.

Variations/ Add-ins:
- Add a spoon of flax seed meal.
- Add a small handful of finely chopped spinach after the processing is done.
- For Italian flavor, leave out cumin and cayenne; instead add oregano, sweet basil, a few drops of balsamic vinegar, and a dash of extra virgin olive oil

Tuck hummus in pita bread or a tortilla with lettuce and tomatoes, or enjoy as a snack with chips.

You can also add 1 tsp dried chipotle pepper or 1 canned chipotle in adobo to the original recipe, for a smoky flavor.
