Hummus from Dried Beans

1 cup dried garbanzo beans (garbanzos)
2 tablespoons tahini
4 garlic cloves
2 teaspoons cumin powder
1/3 cup lemon juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 pinch cayenne pepper, powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon olive oil, for serving
1 pinch sweet paprika, for serving
1 Soak the garbanzos (chickpeas) in water for 6 hours. there should be enough water to more than cover the chickpeas and allow them to expand.

2 Drain the chickpeas and put in a large saucepan with 2 litres of fresh water.

3 Simmer for 1 1/4 hours - or until the chickpeas are very tender.

4 Drain the chickpeas, reserving about 1 cup of the liquid. Allow the chickpeas to cool (I often run them under cold water).
5 Put the chickpeas in a food processor with all remaining ingredients - except the reserved liquid and the extra oil and paprika.

6 Process until smooth and creamy looking, adding some of the reserved liquid until the desired consistency is achieved.
7 Serve drizzled with olive oil and paprika
