Drain in a sieve and reserve liquid from the Chickpeas or Garbanzo beans and rinse with cold water.
Place lemon juice, Tahini and garlic in the bowl of a food processor and blend until smooth.
Add the Chickpeas (also known as Garbanzo Beans) with the salt, pepper, cumin, sumac into the processor and blend.
Slowly add the Calivirgin Oil until the mixture is smooth.
Add the reserved liquid, a Tablespoon at a time until the hummus is to the desired consistency.
Serve on pitas, crackers, veggies, or sandwiches. Adjust seasonings and more olive oil as you like!
Hint - Try Calivirgin's many flavors of Olive Oil to give the hummus a personalized taste. For your personal preference, add 1 to 2 teaspoons of perhaps Guilty Garlic, Hot Virgin Jalapeno, or Bountiful Basil. A little of the Lusty Lemon will also add a nice twist. Be adventurous with this classic recipe.
