Hummus without Tahini

This is a Middle Eastern dip that can be served with crackers, pita bread, beagle chips, fresh vegetables, or whatever else you like. This hummus is more mild then most. My kids don't like the strong taste of tahini (sesame paste), but they love this version.  You can also try using other varieties of beans such as great northern or black beans.

1 can Garbanzo beans/chick peas, rinsed and drained (or 1 1/2 cups soft cooked beans)
1/4 C. Olive oil
1 Tbs. Lemon juice
1 tsp. Cumin (ground)

Blend all ingredients together until smooth and creamy. If needed, thin with 1 Tbs. water or olive oil until desired consistency is reached.
