Roasted garlic hummus

Roasted garlic hummus

Sometimes, plain old hummus just doesn’t cut it. Especially with my clientele at home that prefers flavored hummus. One of my favorite variations on the hummus theme is this roasted garlic hummus.

It combines the health benefits of A TON of garlic with those of chickpeas and tahini. For thousands of years, medicinal properties have been attributed to garlic. Science is now beginning to confirm it. Chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) have been grown in Middle Eastern countries for thousands of years. They boast a load of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and protein. As for tahini, which is made from toasted and ground sesame seeds, it is rich in important nutrients like fiber, protein, copper, phosphorus, and selenium and may reduce heart disease risk and inflammation.

But mostly this hummus has a ton of flavor. So, what’s not to like?

How to make roasted garlic hummus

It will take about 30 minutes to roast your garlic and you need to let it cool down, so plan accordingly. You can roast it the day before.

Then, all you need is a food processor. All ingredients go in and zoom zoom voila!… If it is too thick for your liking, add water or reserved liquid from the chickpea can, one tablespoon at a time.

Cayenne pepper is optional, but gives this roasted garlic hummus a nice kick. Sumac adds a warm lemony flavor.

Give it a try and you will be making this on repeat!
