My mom's hummus

The key ingredient here is a full-sized Cuisinart.

2-3 cloves garlic
Juice of one lemon
1/3 cup tahini
1 can of chickpeas (save the water)
Salt to taste

Garlic goes into the Cuisinart first. Pulse it a few times before adding the chickpeas, tahini, and lemon juice. Add maybe a third of the chickpea water to the cuisinart before blending the ingredients until smooth.

Once mostly blended, add salt to taste and more of the chickpea water if necessary. Also add the parsley and blend for an additional 30 seconds or so.

That's it.
