  1. In your food processor, combine the tahini and lemon juice and process for 1 minute, scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then process for a few more seconds
  2. Add the chickpeas, olive oil, minced garlic, cumin, and salt to the tahini and lemon juice.
  3. Process until smooth, scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then every now and then to ensure everything is thoroughly mixed.
  4. If the hummus is not as smooth as you would like, add water, 1 tablespoon at a time then blend until desired consistency is achieved
  5. I normally add about 4 tablespoons of water and blend everything for around 5 minutes
  6. Sprinkle with paprika just before serving
  7. Will keep in a covered container in the fridge for around a week
