Authentic Lebanese hummus. A recipe handed down to me from my grandmother who learned to cook in Lebanon as part of the Armenian diaspora.
1) Combine all the ingredients, except the olive oil, parsley, and paprika, into a food processor (or blender) and puree until very smooth (about 4 minutes). Add more water if you prefer a smoother hummus.
2) Spoon the hummus in a wide shallow bowl or container (I use a big pyrex) and spread the top smooth. Sprinkle generously with paprika, pour on a layer of olive oil (this will remain on top of the hummus) and garnish with parsley.
