Hummus - makes 2 cups

Cuisinart original

This is your basic hummus. To change it up a bit, add a cooked
red pepper, or roasted beets or fresh herbs. This hummus is delicious
on its own, but also makes a great foundation for new flavor variations like roasted pepper or fresh herb.

1          garlic clove, peeled
1          can (15.5 ounces) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
½         cup tahini
2          tablespoons fresh lemon juice
¾         teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
            Pinch ground cumin
½         cup water (plus more if needed)
