Healthy Hummus

2 cans garbanzo beans (drained) -- or Great Northern beans
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

2 Tbsp. olive oil or coconut oil
2 Tbsp. tamari or Bragg Liquid Aminos

2-4 garlic cloves, whole
1/2 cup tahini (sesame butter)
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1 drop lemon essential oil  (only therapeutic grade oils)
1 drop dill essential oil
2 drops cumin essential oil

Blend all ingredients in food processor or blender, gradually adding reserved bean liquid (only if needed), and blending until smooth and creamy.  Serve with fresh vegetables, crackers or chips.

 * For easier digestion soak dried garbanzo beans (chick peas) or great northern beans in water and apple cider vinegar by following these simple directions below.  Better yet, soak lots of them and freeze some for later!
