have i mentioned my new food processor?

i may or may not have brought up the fact that i am the proud owner of a 9-cup brushed stainless cuisinart food processor.  i love this appliance.  i also love hummus.  and so the story begins.

i made hummus.  the end.

1 16 oz can of garbanzo beans
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini
juice from half a lemon
garlic to taste
salt to taste
cumin to taste
any combination of spices, oils, peppers, etc. that you deem appropriate

put everything into the food processor and process it until creamy.
these are the flavor combinations we've come up with:
original - nothing fancy
jalapeno - added chunks of jalapeno and additional cumin
spice blend - added a random assortment of spices from my spice rack until i got a taste i enjoyed
beet - added beets and more lemon juice
