Hummus is one of my go-to snacks and I’ve shared so many different ways to make it. One of my personal favorites is this version!

Roasted garlic is one of the best ingredients. I can eat those cloves like candy and it works wonders in this recipe!

Just be sure to plan ahead because it will take some time to roast the garlic in the oven.

Yum yum perfectly caramelized garlic meets creamy, lemony hummus. It’s a match meant to be!

How to Make Roasted Garlic Hummus

  • Roast garlic in foil in oven. Let cool.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Tracie Thompson: I’ve made this recipe roughly ten times. Most of those have been doubled. It’s always fantastic. I’ve begun adding 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes to the recipe and topping the bowl with more red pepper flakes, olive oil, and a very healthy portion of fresh parsley (a demand from a Syrian physician I worked with for several years). This recipe ROCKS June 16, 2018 at 11:44am Reply
