roasted garlic hummus

Considering that I make hummus at least a few times a month, I can’t believe that I’ve never shared my recipe with you before! I love having hummus in the house at all times because, let’s face it, it is pretty much the best dip, spread, topping and straight-from-the-spoon there is. And once you make it yourself, hummus from the store just won’t cut it. I will admit that having a food processor makes the entire hummus process a very easy one.  I personally have never had good luck using a blender, but I know it is possible!

Hummus makes an appearance with veggies on a regular basis for snacks, in wraps, sandwiches, and as a wonderful topping for salads. I like to serve mine with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika.

Roasted Garlic Hummus

  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 can garbanzo beans (or about 1.5 cup prepared beans)
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp tahini
  • 1/2 Tbsp cumin
  • salt & pepper

Pre-heat oven to 420° F. Wrap garlic cloves in a foil packet and roast for about 30 minutes. Remove from packet and squeeze garlic out of the shell. Add all ingredients to food processor and process until desired consistency.

Do you like your hummus plain or flavored? I generally prefer plain, but once in a while, some add-ins are a nice change of pace!

    I make hummus a few times a month as well. Usually plain, but once in awhile I add cilantro and jalepeno. I really like the roasted garlic in your’s and will be giving that a try.

    We eat a ton of hummus in our house but always buy it from the store. I am definitely going to try your recipe. Love the roasted garlic in there.

    My absolute favorite hummus is Trader Joe’s Mediterranean flavor but it’s not easy for me to get there often enough. I love love LOVE hummus and will be trying your recipe this week. One of my favorite things to do is to put it on a wrap with feta, red pepper and sometimes cucumber. A great lunch!

    I’m not the biggest fan of hummus, so I have t say I like it non-traditional. Preferably with some funky flavors to keep me intrigued.

    Is there a typo in your blog title?

    The idea of roasting the garlic is fantastic. I have tried and it makes a much more subtle but wonderful taste for the hummus.
