Reserve 5 chickpeas as a garnish. In a food processor or blender, puree the remaining chick peas, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, tahini, 1 tablespoons of the olive oil, garlic paste, avocado, salt and cumin until a soft creamy paste is obtained. Taste and season with additional salt and lemon juice if needed.
