Garlic-Lemon Hummus

Tahini is sesame seed butter and can usually be found near the peanut butter in the grocery store. To release more juice out of a lemon-press it with the palm of your hand and roll it around on a hard surface until it softens.

Serving Suggestions: Serve hummus with crusty French bread or your favorite crackers.

¼ cup tahini
1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, rinsed, drained
3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 teaspoon cumin
½ cup chopped green or red pepper
1/3 cup fresh organic lemon juice (about 2 lemons) Note: If you can not find organic lemons buy USA grown.
1 tablespoon lite soy sauce
½ cup chopped raw parsley
2/3 cup water

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth and fluffy.
