Lemon-Garlic Hummus

I found this on great website that has a lot of recipes using local produce.  You can see them at From Farm to Table.  I made it last night for us to take to our outdoor church service and it was a hit!  EASY as anything to make and my whole family gobbled it up - except my 19 year old who likes the taste of hummus but not the consistency.  LOL

Lemon-Garlic Hummus

1 (15 oz.) can chick peas, rinsed and drained
1-2 cloves garlic, cracked from skin
1 lemon, zested and juiced
4-5 sprigs fresh thyme leaves, stripped from stems
coarse salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup olive oil
a few drops of hot sauce, to taste (if desired - I skip this)

Place garlic in a food processor and mince, then add chick peas, lemon zest and juice, thyme, salt, pepper, hot sauce and olive oil.  Blend together thoroughly.  Transfer dip to a serving dish and surround with veggies and chips.
