I love hummus and homemade has a much better flavor and what is great is that you can tweak the flavor to suit your taste at the time.

Here is what I do to make hummus

1 15 ounce can garbanzo beans
4 large cloves of garlic (add more if you want a strong garlic flavor)
1/3 cup of water (add more if consistency is to thick)
1/2 cup tahini
juice of 4 lemons (use less if you aren't a big fan of lemons)
salt to taste
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Put all ingredients into a blender or food processor and mix until smooth.  Serve with wedges of pita, crackers or vegetables.
