I have raved before about The Schamle's Favorites hummus recipe. I love it. Love it, love it, love it! But it makes a mess o' hummus. So here, I just want to repeat the recipe - halved - for my own convenience.
Half a Batch O' Hummus
1 can garbanzo beans, drained, reserve liquid
1 tsp minced garlic
1 + 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
a little less than 2/3 cup tahini
1/8 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp table salt
Combine all ingredients (except bean juice) in food processor and puree. Add bean juice until mixture takes on a smooth texture. Or use an immersion blender. Or a hand mixer. I don't think this would do well in a blender.

Notes: I use the full amount of olive oil, but only 1 T lemon juice and I make up the difference with the reserved bean juice by eyeballing how the texture looks. I also add two pinches of salt instead of the 1/2 tsp since I'm overly sensitive to salty foods.
