    My version of hummus formulated after years of experimenting varies the recipe here by:
    1. leave out the olive oil... not needed, only adds calories.
    2. grind the garlic in a mortar and pestle with a pinch or two of salt before adding to the blender... it somehow brings out the garlic flavour better.
    3. drain the beans (reserve the liquid) before blending but add some of the reserved liquid back in during blending until required consistency is achieved - quite a lot of liquid!
    4. after blending let it stand in the blender for half an hour then recheck consistency... may need to blend again and add more liquid.
    5. check salt levels (it went in with the garlic) before adding any...
    6. sometimes extra lemon juice is needed, but do this to taste.
