Traditional Hummus

Mmm...I love hummus. I love it on sandwiches. I love it on warm pita bread. I love it on veggies. I've made it several ways and now...this is the traditional way. It's so yummy on pita or this sunflower-wheat bread with cucumbers, tomatoes, and fresh basil leaves. Yum!!

In a food processor, process:
1 can of garbanzo beans (chick peas), drained
1 large clove of garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon of tahini
juice of 1 lemon
sea salt
olive oil (stream in until smooth)
It will take several minutes to get it to the consistency you want. Remember to scrape down the sides of the food processor bowl to catch any large pieces.
