No-Tahini Hummus

Man, you want some hummus. You have the garbanzo beans (chickpeas), but you forgot to buy tahini, a central ingredient in most hummus recipes. You're out of luck. Right? Wrong, you don't need tahini to make great hummus. All you need is some quality olive oil and a food processor, and you're on your way to a creamy, delicious dip.

Smash the 4 large garlic cloves and toss into the food processor or blender with oil and salt. Drain the cans of chickpeas and rinse them, then add a ½-cup of them and blend until watery and smooth. Add the remaining chickpeas, ½ of the strained lemon juice, cumin, and pepper, and pulse until smooth. Add remaining lemon juice to adjust texture. Adjust the seasoning as needed and dig in.
