Place the garbanzo beans in the bottom of a large non-breakable mixing bowl. Cut a lemon in half and squeeze the lemon juice into a bowl. Begin mashing the beans using the potato masher. If making the recipe with children, allow each child to take a turn mashing the beans. Gradually add the remaining ingredients and continue to mash until the mixture is blended and smooth. Serve with a colorful assortment of raw vegetables and whole grain crackers.
