We almost always have hummus of some kind in our fridge.  It's a quick, easy and healthy snack and very easy to make.  If you've got a food processor, tahini paste, and a can of chick peas (garbanzo beans) - you can easily make your own hummus (I know, I've said it before...and before...and before).  It's perfect for a dip or a spread on your favorite sandwich or french bread.
We love this with pita chips and carrots sticks.

2 cloves garlic
1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drain and reserve liquid
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
3 TBS. olive oil
2 tablespoons light sour cream

Mince garlic in the bowl of a food processor. Add remaining ingredients. Process until smooth, adding additional olive oil as needed to reach desired consistency.  Sprinkle with paprika and serve.

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
