Drain the garbanzo beans and reserve 1/4 cup of the liquid
Combine the beans, 1/4 cup reserved liquid, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, olive oil, cumin, pepper and salt in a blender or small food processor. Puree until smooth.
Best if refrigerated for at least 3 hours. Serve in a shallow dish, drizzle additional extra virgin olive oil over the hummus just before serving.
You can add all sorts of extras to this base recipe: sun tried tomatoes, peppers, chilis, ginger. My favorite is to add 1-2 tbs of harissa (a Tunisian hot chili sauce) to give a nice heat!
