Sivan's Super Hummus (egg free, dairy free, gluten free,vegetarian)

This recipe it from my friend in Israel- you cant get any more authentic or easy than this- It disappeared in my office when I brought it in!

1 can of drained chickpeas
3 tbs apple cider vinegar
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
½ cup tehina
3 tbs olive oil
Garnish: Olive oil
Chili pepper
Sweet and spicy paprika
and other sours
1) Strain the canned beans and grind them in a food processor, blender, or chopper. In order to get a smooth and solid consistency, recommended to do this process twice.
2) Add the Apple cider vinegar, garlic, salt, pepper, tehina sauce, and olive oil, and mix well. Taste the mixture and add more spices as you see fit.
3) Prior to serving, put on plate and sorta flatten it out with a spoon, then garnish the chumus with a drop of olive oil on top all around and towards the center, and sprinkle chili pepper. Decorate the outside of this with the rest of garnish and sours. Another idea is to put tehina at the center of the dish. This is soley for presentation, and does not need to be done for it to be edible...
