Healthy Hummus

1 can garbanzo beans (drained, but reserve liquid)
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
3 drops lemon essential oil (therapeutic grade only)

1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. tamari or Bragg Liquid Aminos

2 garlic cloves, whole
1/4 cup tahini (sesame butter)
1/4 tsp. paprika

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

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