That's what Mike has renamed this fantastic 5-minute hummus. For a recent "Mom's Night Out" my friend Kelsey brought this great tasting dip and graciously shared the recipe when we all swooned over it. We've eaten it for the last two days straight and I made another batch tonight since we were running a little low. :)

5-minute Hummus

1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas or garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 clove garlic
1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tblsp. lemon juice
2 Tblsp. tahini (found next to the peanut butter at the store, it's like a sesame seed butter)
1 tsp. ground cumin
3/4 tsp. kosher or sea salt
1/4 tsp. paprika

Place all ingredients in food processor and puree until smooth and creamy. Add 1-2 Tblsp. water to achieve desired consistency. Transfer to bowl and drizzle with more extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with paprika before serving. Enjoy!
