Step 1

Drain the chickpeas in a medium mesh sieve, reserving the liquid. Reserve about 7 chickpeas for garnish.

Step 2

Process the tahini, garlic and cumin in a food processor. With the motor running, slowly drizzle in 2/3 cup of the reserved chickpea liquid (if you don't have exactly 2/3 cup, add water until the total amount is 2/3 cup) and process until light and very creamy, 1 to 2 minutes. The mixture will appear broken at first but will come together after all the liquid is added and has been processed for a minute or two.

Step 3

Add the chickpeas, the lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon salt to the tahini mixture. Process until the mixture is extremely smooth, scraping down the sides occasionally, about 4 minutes. Thin with more water if you prefer a looser consistency. Taste and season with more salt, lemon juice or cumin as desired.

Step 4

Spoon the hummus into a shallow bowl, making a well in the center, and drizzle liberally with oil. Top with the reserved chickpeas and sprinkle with paprika. Serve with pita bread, pita chips or cut raw vegetables.
