Begin by placing the garlic clove into the food processor.  Plus the garlic a couple of times.  Then add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor, except for the water.  Then pulse the mixture for 4-5 minutes. After about a minute or so add the water while the processor is still running.  Add the water until you get a desired consistency.  Continue to blend everything in the processor until smooth and creamy.  Add hummus into a container and refrigerator for about two hours.  Before you eat your hummus drizzle a little bit of extra virgin olive oil on top and sprinkle with red pepper flakes.  You can also add pine nuts and dried parsley if desired.
