1 can chickpeas (use about 1/4 cup of the liquid)
1-2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 clove garlic minced (more if you like garlic)
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons fresh basil (optional)

Mix all ingredients (except basil) well in the food processor. Taste to make sure the chickpeas are ground up enough for your taste. If you want to use basil, tear it into pieces and stir in at the end. The basil flavor will increase if you allow it to sit in the hummus for a little while before eating.

Lovely served with slices of cucumbers, slices of apples, pears, carrots and other fresh veggies.

Options: Leave out garlic, and when finished making this, add fresh basil and kalamata olives (pitted) and pulse through the hummus using the food processor. Or do the same with sun dried tomatoes or roasted peppers.
