Hummus Among Us

Alton Brown's Hummus- my alterations
 modified from

1 pound cooked chickpeas (from scratch or canned)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
5 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup tahini, stirred well
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for serving

Place the chickpeas, garlic, and kosher salt in the bowl of a food processor. Process for 15 to 20 seconds. Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and process for another 15 to 20 seconds. Add the lemon juice and water. Process for 20 seconds. Add the tahini. Process for 20 seconds, then scrape down the sides of the bowl. With the processor running, drizzle in the olive oil.

I think this had a bit too much lemon at the same time as was a bit too thin (neither a fatal flaw, however). Next time, I would reduce the lemon juice. To increase the garlic flavor, but maintain the oomph, some garlic powder could be added.
