Apparently, today has been declared Hummus Day, though I have no idea why. Judging by the sheer number of packaged hummus varieties available, it seems as if this chickpea dip is as everyday as fare like like breakfast cereal and potato chips.

1 (15-ounce) can chick peas, drained, liquid reserved
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
¼ cup tahini
Chili (see options below)
1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Pita bread, for serving
