Hummus

2 cups dry chick peas
1 pound jar tahini
3 garlic cloves
¼ cup soy sauce --natural (tamari)
1 lemon onion water from cooked beans
2 tsp cumin --powdered (optional)
paprika for garnish
parsley for garnish

Soak beans overnight. Drain and place on cookie sheet. Freeze several hours. cook frozen beans in double amount of water with onion in it or cook in a pressure cooker instead of freezing first. Blend cooked beans (pureeing while still warm makes blending easier) and onion a little at a time, using as much water as necessary to keep blender going. Add garlic cloves, soy sauce and lemon juice to taste along with beans. If you're using cumin, add it now. When all beans have been blended with other ingredients to a thick sauce, place in a large bowl. Add one jar of tahini and mix well, adding more tamari, garlic, or lemon juice if a stronger flavor is desired. (add more water for thinner consistency.) Place on a shallow dish, spread smoothly and sprinkle with paprika and parsley. Serve with pita strips, use as a sandwich spread, or stuff into celery.
