Instructions
  1. Drain the chickpeas, reserving the liquid. Place the chickpeas in a food processor or blender along with the Tahini, garlic, fresh lemon juice, salt, and cumin. Process until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Add enough of the reserved liquid from the drained chickpeas to bring the mixture to a nice dip consistency. Transfer the hummus to a serving dish.
  2. Lightly drizzle some extra virgin olive oil on top of the hummus. Sprinkle with a dash of paprika and the chopped fresh parsley.
  3. Serve with pita chips or an assortment of fresh vegetables.
