 Lower-Fat Hummus One favorite for flavor is the garbanzo bean.  I like this
 hummus as a dip for baby carrots.
 
 In food processor, puree garbanzo beans, tahini, water, garlic and lemon
 juice until smooth.  Adjust seasonings as needed.  Refrigerate overnight to
 allow flavors to develop.  Stir in salt, black pepper and cayenne to taste.
  Makes about 2 cups.
