Roasted Garlic Hummus and a Magimix Giveaway (MSRP $650)!


Today I am thrilled to be sharing with you one of my all time favorite kitchen appliances – this Magimix 16-cup food processor! This is honestly in my top two favorite kitchen appliances, you’ve never seen a food processor like it! When we’re talking food processors, this thing is the best of the best, the top of the line. It really just doesn’t get any better. The way it minces, mixes, purees, kneads, shreds, dices etc. is exactly what you look for in a food processor. It gets the job done efficiently and it gets the job done right. This is a kitchen appliance that I highly recommend, it is well worth the investment.

The Magixmix food processors have an incredibly powerful yet incredibly quiet motor. The motor also automatically adjusts power and speed based on what’s being processed. I love that this model specifically comes with three different bowls, so if you need to processes multiple batches of different ingredients you don’t have to stop and wash out bowls, you can just switch to the next size. Another thing I love about this is the quality of everything included, this thing was built to last and last it shall (it comes with a 30 year motor guarantee, yes 30 YEARS. I can only image how many things I can make in that time with peace of mind!). I was also so impressed with how many different accessories are included, and how many more attachments you can purchase to use with it.

The great thing about Magimix food processors is that this is a product that they’ve been working on perfecting since 1971 (you can read more on their product history HERE). Their company (Robot Coupe) invented and launched the very first domestic food processor. That history alone gives me assurance of the value of this product.

I used my Magimix food processor today to make this unbelievably delicious and highly addictive roasted garlic hummus. I can’t even begin to express to you how much I love this hummus! To get an idea of how much I love roasted garlic, when we go out to eat at Italian restaurants much of the time I’ll ask for a side of roasted garlic (to either toss into the pasta or eat all it’s own). Then every now and then at home I will just get the craving for it in the middle of the day out of now where, so I toss one in the oven to eat for a snack. Some of you may be thinking thats a little extreme but to me, not at all. It’s a flavor that is just incomparable. So, when I combine that with another of my favorite things, a creamy and smooth hummus, we know good things are destined to happen, right?

I’ve lived on it for lunch with fresh veggies the past two days. It went fast around here, so two batches were made in two days. And I’m thinking another batch needs to be made again this weekend (and I might even add more garlic because I’m a little obsessed). I just can’t get enough of this hummus.

You have to make it, that’s all I can say :). Enjoy, and again, don’t forget to enter the Magimix Food Processor GIVEAWAY below!!

Roasted Garlic Hummus and a Giveaway!

5 from 1 vote

Yield: About 4 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes


  • 1 large head garlic
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp olive oil , divided
  • 1 (15 oz) can chick peas, drained
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp tahini
  • 1/2 tsp salt , or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 - 3 Tbsp water
  • Chopped fresh parsley and red pepper flakes , for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut about 1/4-inch from top of garlic to expose tops of cloves. Place garlic head on a sheet of foil and drizzle 1 1/2 tsp olive oil evenly over top of garlic. Wrap foil up around garlic and roast 35 - 45 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  2. To a food processor add chick peas, lemon juice, tahini, salt and cumin then pulse mixture 2 minutes. Scrape down sides and bottom of food processor, add remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil, set aside 3 - 4 cloves of the garlic and add remaining (about 10 - 11) to food processor. Pulse 1 minute, then add water (I used 3 Tbsp but if you like it thicker you may want to use 2) and pulse 1 - 2 minutes longer.
  3. Plate hummus, make indentation in center and add 1 - 2 Tbsp more olive oil to taste (optional), then chop remaining roasted garlic cloves and sprinkle over top, sprinkle with parsley and red pepper flakes. Serve with fresh veggies or pita chips. Store in refrigerator in an airtight container.

  • DebV: Humus sounds great. Want to try it. I hate people that comment w/o trying the recipe, I want to know if it is good.
    But that being said I also have a problem with contests that only involve social media and rafflecopter. At least I use Pinterest and will have a tiny chance to win such a great prize. Although I probably won’t. Think of all of us that like to keep things more private and pick through comments.
    Thanks for some great recipes. I enjoy your site. Thank you for the chance to win. September 18, 2014 at 8:31pm Reply

    I adore hummus and made your version once– which I found on pinterest. Today I share how sabra adds GMO’s to their recipe and as an alternate option will share your recipe with my readers.
    I am sure they are going to love it too. I am actually making it this weekend again.

    Keep up the great work.

  • Ginny: I made your hummus recipe (DE-lish!) I’m closely tracking my calorie intake. I see that this recipe yields approximately 4 servings. Could you tell me how much for each serving? Would you say about 1/2 cup? Thanks for your help! December 2, 2014 at 8:34pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I just guessed on servings based off what we ate but I think they were being pretty generous as labels on packages say 2 Tbsp, so I’d probably go with anywhere from 2 – 4 tbsp but that may be more servings. January 13, 2015 at 9:40pm Reply

  • Cindy: Hey I’m wondering what is tahini and where do I find it? April 7, 2015 at 2:12pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Tahini is finely ground sesame seed paste. I’ve seen it by the Mediterranean food (if your store carries it) and by asian food – so somewhere along ethnic isles. I’ve even seen it by the peanut butter. To save time you may just want to ask a worker :). Most big grocery stores should carry it. April 7, 2015 at 10:46pm Reply

  • Aaron: Great recipe. I made a batch last night my wife and I polished off for dinner. I made a double batch today. The only change I made today was to add a clove of raw garlic chopped just yup give a little fresh garlic flavor. We will no longer be buying garluc hummus.
