A great addition to any appetizer spread, a substitute for mayo on sandwiches, or a great late night snack. What is Roasted Garlic Hummus? Lol, feel like I am on Jeopardy.
You may eat it with an array of veggies, chips, pita bread or on a shoe (yes it tastes that good). This is healthier than regular hummus, we have not used tahini, which is a sesame paste in oil. Enjoy this yummy recipe and know that while it’s easy on the hips, your tummy will be very pleased and full.
Roasted Garlic HummusCourse: AppetizersDifficulty: Easy
A great addition to any appetizer spread, a substitute for mayo on sandwiches, or a great late night snack.
15 to 20 peeled cloves of garlic
¼ – ½ cup of olive oil
1 tsp of salt
¼ lemon juice
1 can of drained garbanzo beans
- To start, let’s roast up the garlic. Heat your oven to 425, and grab a medium size piece of foil; big enough to make a purse. In the middle of the foil drop in about 15 to 20 cloves of peeled garlic, you can use frozen or fresh. Pick up the sides of the foil, creating a cradle or purse around the garlic and pour in the olive oil, enough to cover the garlic. You may want to take another piece of foil to place under the purse due the oil maybe finding its way out of the purse. Roast the garlic for 45 minutes or until fork tender.
- Let cool while you grab your food processor, lemon, salt, and the can of garbanzo beans.
- Drain the garbanzo beans and rinse with water, dump them in the food processor.
- Start blending on high and add in the salt, lemon juice, roasted garlic and the infused garlic oil and combine.
- Once the hummus has the smooth consistency, taste. If it is too lemony add more oil, and opposite if it is too oily. Spread over a plate, or in a bowl and top with paprika and enjoy.
