    Official Brigade Humus Recipe

    1 can Chick Peas (Garbanzo Beans) Drained - liquid reserved
    1-2 cloves garlic
    2-3 Tsp. Lemon Juice (2 then add more to taste)
    2-3 Tsp. Olive Oil (depends on consistency desired)
    2 Tsp. Tahini
    Smidge of salt
    Smidge of pepper

    Stick in blender or food processor. Blend. If it is too thick, add Tsp at a time of drained Chick Pea juice or more lemon juice until it reaches desired consistency and flavor. Some people like cumin and paprika in theirs. I think if you use it, it should be used lightly when it is served sprinkled on top and not mixed in at time of prep you could also garnish, if you so wish, with olive oil, toasted pinenuts and whole chick peas. Also can be made with Kidney beans and Garbanzo mixed (Kidney beans add sweetness). Or you can use Frijoles Negros which allows the flavor of the olive oil to be revealed. There's also the Frijoles Negros and sweet corn version. You get the idea.

    You can also add cayenne or some such hotter-than-paprika pepper. See? I get the idea.
