•One 15-ounce can (425 grams) chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans
•1/4 cup (59 ml) fresh lemon juice, about 1 large lemon

•Half of a large garlic clove, minced
•2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for serving
•1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
•2 to 3 tablespoons water
•Dash of ground paprika for serving
Most likely the hummus will be too thick or still have tiny bits of chickpea. To fix this, with the food processor turned on, slowly add 2 to 3 tablespoons of water until the consistency is perfect.
