Steam the shelled garbanzo beans for 20 minutes. Make sure to check the water level if you're using a smaller pan so the water doesn't run out (refill as needed). Remove garbanzo beans from steamer and allow to cool.
In a food processor or blender, pulse the cooked garbanzo beans a few times. Add the garlic, tahini paste, lemon juice and salt and blend. With the food processor or blender running, slowly pour in the water to your desired texture (add more water if you want your hummus a little more smooth).
Pour into your favorite dish and garnish with olive oil, paprika and sesame seeds if desired. Serve with crackers or vegetables for dipping; spread it onto a sandwich.
