David's Hummus

My brother-in-law makes the best hummus in the world! His dad is from the Middle East so you know it's legit. I finally got his recipe and I'm so excited. Thanks Dave!
14 oz can garbanzo beans (drained)
1 clove garlic
3 T lemon juice
3 T olive oil
3 T tahini
1/4 t cumin
1/4 t kosher salt
1/8 t turmeric
1/8 t curry powder
1/8 t red pepper flakes
4 to 6 T water (to desired consistency)

Optional: 1 T fresh parsley

Optional: 1 T toasted pine nuts (slowly brown in frying pan for about 3 min)

Blend together beans, garlic, tahini, spices, olive oil, lemon juice, half of the parsley and half of the toasted pine nuts in food processor adding water last until desired texture is reached.

Serve smoothed out onto a plate with a sprinkle of paprika, olive oil, lemon juice and garnish with remaining parsley and pine nuts. Serve with toasted or warmed pita slices.

Just a note -- our favorite brand of tahini is Mid-East brand. It's good with other brands, but even better with this! You can find it at Middle Eastern markets.
