Roasted Garlic Hummus

Roasted Garlic Hummus

I love to serve up hummus for my garlic-lovin-friends when they come over on Friday night.  We sit around the table breaking apart homemade flatbread, swigging on fermented refreshments, and listening to timeless dance beats.  A stopover with snacks turns into an evening of grilling and dancing with good friends.

Roasted Garlic Hummus

If you’ve never made hummus, this is an excellent recipe. It’s definitely milder than hummus made with fresh garlic.

Ingredients

  • 1 bulb roasted garlic
  • 15 ounces chickpeas cooked & drained
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice freshly juiced if possible
  • 3 tablespoons tahini

Instructions

  1. Squeeze roasted garlic cloves into a food processor. Add chickpeas, lemon juice, and tehina.
  2. Process until coarsely pureed.  If the consistency seems too thick, add a little water or lemon juice.
  3. Serve with pita wedges, crackers, carrots, or use a sandwich spread.
