Hummus Beautified

Hummus is a delicious snack. This mediterranean treat is typically served with grilled pitas and makes a great appetizer for a gathering. We recently catered a small ladies luncheon at a clients home and created a fabulous little hors d'oeuvre using this healthy spread

1 clove garlic
1 (19 ounce) can garbanzo beans, ( keep 1/2 can of the liquid on the side)
4 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons tahini
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon salt black pepper
2 tablespoons of good olive oil

DirectionsPlace the beans into a blender or food processor. Add lemon juice, tahini, chopped garlic and salt. Blend until creamy and well mixed.
Transfer the mixture to a medium serving bowl. Sprinkle with pepper and pour olive oil on top. If you are making the hors d'oeuvre above, place hummus in a piping bag and insert into mini cones made of zucchini peels
