Simply Easy Homemade Hummus

Simply Easy Homemade Hummus 
- 2 cans drained and rinsed garbanzo beans (aka: Chickpeas)
- 2-4 Tb lemon juice (depending on how lemony you like it!)
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 1/2 cup water
- kosher salt to taste
- fresh cracked pepper to taste
(We just don't like Tahini (sesame paste), but if you do, you could add a Tb of that too)

1. Throw all the ingredients in a quality food processor or blender and let it blend (scraping down the sides once in a while) until smooth and creamy

-Add more or less water to reach your desired consistency
-Experiment with your favorite spices to change it up a bit! (paprika, cumin, ground coriander, etc)
- After blending, stir in some chopped fresh (or dried) herbs for color, flavor, and nutrition
-Use as a dip for any raw veggies, as a pasta or pizza sauce, or as a salad dressing (thin with a little water or veggie stock)
