Hummus is a house staple. I make it often to snack on and for meals served to friends. It takes minutes and is very open to improvisation.

1 15.5 ounce can of chickpeas
1 cup of olive oil
1/2 cup of Tahini
8 cloves of raw garlic
Juice of two lemons
1 tablespoon Turmeric
1 tsp. Cumin
1 tsp. Coriander
1/2 tsp. white pepper

Put the whole mess in a food processor and mix until it has the texture you like. Use as a dip, a sandwich spread, or for the hardcore, eat with a spoon.
