In food processor, blend chickpeas, reserved chickpea liquid, garlic clove, tahini, lemon juice and salt. Slowly incorporate ½ cup olive oil as it blends. Consistency should be creamy and thick. Add remaining chickpea liquid to thin it out if desired. Garnish with paprika, toasted sesame seeds and finish with remaining tablespoon of olive oil.
