I got this recipe from some Heart-healthy magazine, years ago. It has a lot less tahini and oil than most conventional hummus recipes do.

1-1/2 c. chickpeas
1/4 c. water
3 T. lemon juice
1 T. tahini
1 t. olive oil
3/4 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. cumin
ground red pepper

Mix all in the food processor.

You can add some kick by flavoring your hummus with additional ingredients. Here are a few ideas:

roasted red pepper
kalamata olives
red pepper flakes
sun dried tomatos
