Place ingredients in food processor and blend until combined. Slow add in 1 Tablespoon of the reserved bean liquid* until it reaches your desired consistency and creaminess (I usually add 3 Tablespoons).
Give it a taste -- and ensure it doesn't need anything else. Consider white black pepper for a little kick, more lemon, more tahini for nuttiness, or salt. Serve with crackers, on bread, with carrots and celery, or bell peppers at room temperature or cold.
This recipes makes 1 ½ cups. Storage: Store leftover hummus in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. *If you forget to reserve the bean liquid when draining (it happens to the best of us), just add water instead.
