Italian Hummus without the high ticket price

Me and my daughter have been eating a lot of hummus lately. I am always irritated at how much the health food stores charge for a tiny package of hummus. So, I am now making my own. My favorite is the garlic rosemary italian hummus. It is so easy to make and a fraction of the cost. Takes about 5 minutes and anyone can do it if you have a blender.
1 (15 to 18-ounce) can garbonzo beans, rinsed and drained
3 tablespoons sesame tahini paste
You can find it in the Kosher isle... don't ask me why. Here is what it looks like:

2 cloves garlic, grated or minced
3 sprigs rosemary, leaves finely chopped  (we grow our own)
1 lemon (we have a lemon tree)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Put it all in a blender and blend until smooth.
tada! Easy and yummy. I love to put it on pita bread. Add tomatoes and cucumbers to make a sandwich and it is extra tasty. It is also a great dip for a party.
