Vegan Hummus! In 5 Minutes

Hummus is one of those foods I can eat multiple times a week. Its good as a spread or dip. Not including the cook time of the beans, this takes less then five minutes to make.

2 cups chickpeas, cooked / rinsed
1 clove garlic
1⁄4 cup olive oil, plus more for serving
1/2 fresh lemon (juiced)
2 tbsp. tahini
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. paprika

In a food processor, puree the chickpeas and garlic with the olive oil, lemon juice, tahini , cumin, and salt until smooth and creamy. Add oil as needed to achieve the consistency you want.

Transfer to a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the paprika before serving.

Here's a great video I found showing how to make hummus.
